What's causing the rumbling noise in my Ford Kuga?

I’ve just bought a 2010 Ford Kuga diesel with the PowerShift automatic gearbox. There is a rumbling noise coming from the centre near the gearbox transfer box like a wheel bearing noise. The gearbox Is fine and I've checked both oils in the gearbox and transfer box. Is this a common fault and could you tell me what might be causing the noise?

Reads like a crack or split in the exhaust system. I would recommend getting it checked.
