Martin Cranie, speaking to barnsleyfc.co.uk said, "I'm delighted to have signed for Barnsley. It's taken up to the start of the season to get it done, but I'm glad I am here now. The gaffer has shown a lot of faith in me and when I came in to have a look around he had a lot of good things to say.
"I've been at Leeds training during preseason so I am fit and raring to go.
"Tomorrow night's game at Wolves will be a tough one, but the lads are all positive. On the Saturday they played very well and they deserved to win which is a great positive to take into Tuesday's game."
