Shrimps warned off Craney

10 Jul 2008 - 13:43:15

Morecambe have had two offers for Accrington Stanley midfielder Ian Craney rejected by their Lancashire rivals.

The 25-year-old is currently in his second spell with the Reds after returning to the Fraser Eagle Stadium on a permanent basis from Swansea City in January.

Accrington chairman Eric Whalley told the club's official website: "Morecambe expressed an interest in Ian back in May and, although they did make a couple of offers, neither were anywhere near a figure for which we'd be prepared to let him go.

"We paid £85,000 to Swansea for Ian and we'd be looking for a bid worth a little more than that to move things forward.

"We haven't heard anything since we rejected their second offer at the start of June and so it's a little surprising that they've only just decided make their interest public.

"From the Premiership to non-league every player has a price. Ian has shown that he's a very talented player and, if Morecambe are serious about wanting to make him one of their players, then they'll have to make a serious offer."
