Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt reveals that he wants quarterback Alex Smith to be at the club beyond the 2014 season when his current deal expires.

Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt has admitted that the club are hopeful of keeping quarterback Alex Smith beyond when his current deal expires after the 2014 season.

Smith had a solid season for Andy Reid's side, improving them from a 2-14 team in 2012 to 11-5 and a place in the wildcard round of the AFC playoffs this season.

"When we made the trade for him a year ago, that was part of the thinking," Hunt told 810 WHB. "I don't think that thinking has changed.

"He came in and did a nice job. We're glad to have him as a part of the Kansas City Chiefs and we hope it's longer than a two-year stay."

The 29-year-old threw for 3,313 yards along with 23 touchdowns and seven interceptions in the 2013 regular season.
