REPORTS that Pool have offered Stephen Crainey a club record £15,000-a-week deal are wide of the mark.

However, it is true that the Seasiders have made Crainey a good offer and talks with the Scotland left-back are ongoing.

Crainey, who turned 30 yesterday, spoke with the club again this week and is understood to be discussing his options with his family. Those options include Wigan, Bristol City and a couple of clubs in Scotland.

Matt Gilks is in the same boat. The keeper has been offered a lucrative deal by Pool but has options to weigh up. Gilks is on holiday but has promised a decision on his return.
