Craney rejoins Accrington Stanley
Ian Craney
Craney has not started a league game this season
Swansea midfielder Ian Craney has rejoined old club Accrington Stanley.

Craney moves to Accrington in a three-month loan deal less than a year after leaving the club to join the Swans in a six-figure transfer.

The 25-year-old started 24 League One games for Swansea last season but his only starts this season have come in the Carling Cup and League Trophy.

Craney previously played over 100 games for Stanley and is likely to make his second 'debut' at Bury on Saturday.

I want to make it clear that I see my future at Swansea City

"Ian needs to be playing regularly to get his confidence back," Swansea manager Roberto Martinez told the club's website.

"By going back to his own environment and enjoying his football, hopefully that will happen.

"He's a model professional and wants to play. He's got to get that belief back so he returns to Swansea fresh and ready for a new challenge."

Craney added: "I could have gone to another League One club on loan, but as it's only for three months it's better to go somewhere that I know.

"It feels right, but I also want to make it clear that I see my future at Swansea City."
