The midfielder was told by Roberto Martinez that he could not guarantee the player first team football at Swansea City this term. Craney has expressed his delight at securing a move back to the Frazer Eagle stadium.

Stanley manager John Coleman was confident that a deal could be reached by the weekend .

Craney Told The Official Site

"I'm delighted to be back at Accrington. I have great memories from the Conference winning season and it's been fantastic coming back on loan these last few months.

Accrington is a terrific club with a great manager and is well set up behind the scenes. The club has big ambitions and I look forward to achieving more success here in the future."


Craney has found himself pushed to the sidelines after the arrival of Ferrie Bodde and Paul Anderson and was not guarenteed a place in Roberto Martinez's squad.



Martinez Told The Official Site

"I sat down with Ian and listened to what he had to say,''

"He wanted to play regular first team football which was something I couldn't guarantee taking into account the strength of the squad we have here."

"The next step was to find a solution that both Ian and the club were happy with. Ian's attitude and commitment since he's been at Swansea deserves that kind of treatment and Accrington was the place he wanted to go.

He has opted for a change because he felt he needed a new chapter in his career and I understand that.I'm sure he will learn from his experiences here and it will make him an even better player."

"But I can only praise him for his desire, attitude, commitment and professionalism while he was a Swansea City player and we all wish him every success in the future.''


Craney will go straight into John Coleman's side to face Chester City tomorrow.
