Swansea have completed the permanent signing of Accrington star Ian Craney.

The midfielder has been on loan with the League One club since November but manager Kenny Jackett has now moved to the tie the 24-year-old down to a permanent contract.

The Swans are believed to have paid around £150,000 to secure the signature of the England non-league international after triggering a clause in Craney's contract.

The former Altrincham man has played seven games for the Welsh outfit since his loan switch and will now look to impress further after formalising his move to The Liberty Stadium.

Craney has signed a two-and-a-half year deal after agreeing to join the promotion chasers, and Jackett admits he has been impressed with the midfielder's attitude.

"Ian's a very good passer of the ball and the enthusiasm he's shown since he's been here has been very pleasing," Jackett said.

"He works hard and his goalscoring record at Accrington was very impressive. We're happy to have him here."
