ACCRINGTON Stanley midfielder Ian Craney has admitted that he didn’t want to go out on loan anywhere else but the Fraser Eagle Stadium, after the 25-year-old completed a three month loan last night.

‘I could have gone to another League One club on loan,’ Craney said.

‘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.’
