Quakers are boosted by Smith transfer DARLINGTON are in line for another cash boost following the transfer of one of their former players. Michael Smith is on the verge of leaving Charlton Athletic for Swindon Town , who are managed by former Quakers boss Mark Cooper , writes CRAIG STODDART . After coming through the youth ranks at The Northern Echo Arena and scoring six goals, Smith left Darlington in an [pounds]80,000 transfer in 2011 and a sell-on clause was included as part of the deal. The move comes just weeks after Quakers received [pounds]75,000 from Fulham when a clause was triggered in Dan Burn's contract due to him playing his first senior game for the Cottagers. A deal agreed when Darlington FC was bought by fans from the administrator in 2012 means the club will get half of Smith's sellon money and the rest will go to creditors of the old company, Darlington FC 2009. Smith, 22, spent the first half of the season on loan at AFC Wimbledon, where he scored ten goals in 25 appearances for the League Two club. GRAHAM TURNER has quit as manager of League One strugglers Shrewsbury . The veteran boss, 66, has called time on his second spell at the club with the Shrews a point above the relegation zone following a poor run of results culminating in Saturday's 3-0 defeat against Rotherham . Turner said: "It's a very sad decision. It's a club that I've really enjoyed working at, it's a club that gave me my first opportunity in management, so I'll always appreciate that. "I just felt it wasn't necessarily just Saturday. I think there's been a sequence of results where for several weeks now I thought I could improve things. "I thought I was the right man to get the results going and it hasn't materialised, so I felt that there was a need for a decision to be made." Turner returned to the club in June 2010 , 26 years after he originally left to take charge at Aston Villa, and guided the Shrews to promotion from League Two in 2012. LIVERPOOL defender Sebastian Coates is to rejoin former club Nacional on loan to try and be fit for this summer's World Cup . The 23-year-old has been sidelined since tearing an anterior cruciate ligament in a knee while on international duty for Uruguay in August. STOKE have signed of United States international Juan Agudelo and loaned him immediately to FC Utrecht having failed to get a work permit for the striker. MANCHESTER United manager David Moyes has no chance of signing Brazil defender Dante during this month's transfer window, according to the player's agent.
