Dale duo linked with Owls move

Dale duo linked with Owls move

Rochdale duo Chris O'Grady and Scott Wiseman have been linked with summer moves to Hillsborough.

The duo are on Owls boss Gary Megson's hit list this close season as he looks to add nine new faces to bolster the Wednesday squad for a promotion push next season, according to the Sheffield Star.

Both players featured for the Spotland club as they put Wednesday to the sword with a 2-1 victory in Lancashire this season - one of Megson's first games in charge.

He clearly liked what he saw and could follow up his interest with bids for the duo in the coming weeks.

Former Leicester City and Rotherham United hitman O'Grady is a powerful forward and scored nine goals for Dale from 49 appearances this season, helping them to the verge of the play-offs.

Wiseman, 25, came through the Hull City youth ranks but has come of age since joining Keith Hill's side, making 41 appearances last season as a full-back.

Wednesday have already signed midfielder David Prutton from Swindon Town and centre-back Rob Jones from Scunthorpe United.

Should be noted that O'Grady has played on the left wing most of the season, set quite a few up. I live in Rochdale, they love him up here.

A 6ft 3in left winger?! Just a little concerned that we may be adding another big front-man and turning into a one-trick pony so hope this isn't true. The right-back sounds like he may have a little pedigree though having played for England at U20 level.

Yep, He played up front for them in league 2, but has been pushed out wide this season according to a Dale fan i work with. That and he played out on the left both games against us.

i shouldn't have watched barcelona the other night because this type of news is completely underwhelming in comparison. at least it is good to hear that O'Grady is well thought of

I can't see it to be honest, think Rochdale will probably looking for a decent fee for him, much more than he's worth.

No thank you. If O'Grady and Wiseman are the best we can expect with signings don't expect much throughout the season.

Sheffwed93 who are you expecting us to sign, clearly megsons putting a squad together that will get us out of this league, I doubt they're building a squad to chase promotion in the championship, we've got to do things right and it seem for the first time in a long time that we've got a strategy

If we get promoted this season coming, I'm sure a squad will be built round the championship and build for the charge to the premiership, I like the idea he's building a strong league one team, good players from the same league.

I agree OWL25, we are in division 3 after all sheffwed93, stop living in the past as your name suggests and get off Megsons back.

I have nothing against signing Wiseman and if Buxton doesn't re-sing we will need a first-choice RB but another 6ft 3in striker could well turn us into a one-trick pony as I mentioned before.
