Ian Craney is set to join his former club Accrington Stanley on a three-month loan deal.
Kenny Jackett signed the midfielder for £150,000 in November 2006 but has failed to impress since the move.
Craney was a fans favourite at Accrington, and scored 28 goals in 86 starts but he has failed to hit the same heights with the Swans in League One.
This season he's managed just 1 appearance from the subs bench whilst last season he was a first team regular.
|"I don't think we would miss him here"|
|"Ian needs to start playing regularly again to get his confidence back,'' |
"By going back into his own environment and enjoying his football again, hopefully that confidence will come back.
"He's a model professional and wants to play. A big part of his game is confidence and getting into positions to score goals.
"He's got to get that belief back so he returns to Swansea fresh and ready for a new challenge. It will be a fresh start for him and one he is looking forward to.''
|"I could have gone to another League One club on loan,'' |
"but as it's only for three months, I felt it was better for me to go somewhere I know and where I have enjoyed my football in the past.
"It feels the right thing to do, but I also want to make it clear that I still see my future at Swansea City.
"At the moment I'm not playing first team football because the team is doing well, so I've got no complaints. But I don't think playing reserve team football will help me.
"It's not that I've lost any confidence, but obviously the goalscoring thing is playing on my mind a bit.
"Goals were a major part of my game when I was at Accrington - and they still are.
"Although I played a different role under Kenny Jackett last season which didn't see me get forward as much as I would have liked, I still believe I have plenty of goals in me.
"Although the Gaffer hasn't put any pressure on me, and sees other things in my game, I believe goals are something I can bring to the team more than anything.
"I aim to return from Accrington fresh and raring to go again.''
