Martin Cranie's proposed move to Leeds United is currently in the balance after the free agent decided to sit out Saturday's 3-1 pre season friendly win at Preston.
The defender took the decision to miss the win as he is still yet to agree a contract at Leeds, which saw him reluctant to gamble his fitness with the start of the new season just around the corner.
The 25-year-old has been without a club after he left Coventry City at the end of last season. He has been trying to earn a deal with Leeds for much of pre-season which has seen him feature in the tours of Devon, Cornwall and their fixture in Norway.
Manager Neil Warnock has described Cranie as a 'squad player', and he has no complaints about Cranie's decision to sit out the game against Preston.
