Mirror: Crainey Talks To Bristol City

Mirror: Crainey Talks To Bristol City
Stephen Crainey is in talks with Bristol City over a free transfer to the club, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Blackpool defender is out of contract at the end of the month and free to talk to other clubs.

He has rejected two offers of a new deal by the Seasiders and looks set to be able to earn more money elsewhere.

The rumour has been rumbling on for a number of weeks with City perhaps looking for a replacement for the unimpressive Jamie McAllister.

If Crainey were to choose Ashton Gate over Bloomfield Road it would be a significant blow to Ian Holloway's hopes of keeping the nucleus of the tangerines' promotion side together. At 30, and looking fitter than he ever has at Pool, the full back still has a lot to offer.

One player who definitely won't be at the Pool next season is Marlon Harewood. After being released in May, the striker has been made an offer by Notts County.

Martin Allen met with Harewood on Wednesday and said: WWe have offered a two-year deal. I know he has a lot of options and several at Championship level, but if you don't ask you don't get.'
