The 27-year-old was one of the club's top performers last season and Barnsley are bracing themselves for a number of offers for the defender.

A former England Under-21 international, Cranie boasts a wealth of experience having played in the Premier League for both Southampton and Portsmouth earlier on in his career.

Cranie spent three years at Coventry City, playing over 100 games for the Sky Blues before moving to Oakwell as a free agent in 2012.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
