It brings to an end the 29-year-old's third spell at the Crown Ground after 216 appearances for the club.

Craney made his Stanley debut in 2004 and was part of the side which won promotion to the Football League in 2006 before moving to Swansea.

He returned for a second stint in January 2008 and came back again three years later via Huddersfield, Fleetwood and a loan spell at Morecambe.

A broken ankle suffered in October restricted Craney to 25 appearances this term.

A statement on Accrington's official website read: "Ian leaves with the best wishes of everyone at the club and we thank him for all his service."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
