Barnsley target Crainey move

Barnsley are lining up a move for former Wigan defender Stephen Crainey, Sky Sports understands.

Scotland international Crainey is a free agent after seeing out his contract at Wigan earlier this summer.

A number of clubs are thought to be weighing up a move for Crainey, with the left-back an attractive proposition on a free transfer.

Barnsley are thought to have expressed an interest in Crainey as Danny Wilson looks to bolster his squad this summer.

Wilson is keen to assemble a squad capable of winning promotion back to the Championship and Crainey's experience is seen as a valuable addition to his plans.
