Dale reject Owls offer for O'Grady

Dale reject Owls offer for O'Grady

Rochdale have rejected an offer from Wednesday for striker Chris O'Grady, according to reports.

The Owls have been linked with the former Leicester City man throughout the summer and is reporting Dale, Wednesday's npower League 1 rivals, have turned down an initial offer, believed to be £200,000.

O'Grady was a star performer for the Spotland club last season as they just missed out on the play-off spots under former boss Keith Hill.

He only has 12 months left on his contract with the Lancashire club and Dale could well look to cash-in on one of their star players if the right offer comes along.

O'Grady is understood to be high on Gary Megson's wishlist this summer and Wednesday are expected to return with an improved offer to get their man.

Thank god! Awful player. Think we should be more ambitious than O'Grady… there are plenty of League 1 strikers who would jump to sign for us. But we're wasting our time with flops like O'Grady. Starting to worry about this season now…

speaking as somebody whose actually watched him, get him signed asap.

agreed dezzy he is much better than we currently have if he plays wide and can also do a job as a striker get him before someone else does

i live in rochdale and take in the odd game when nothing else to do. He's much more effective as a striker, but very good on the left. in a good team he would score a bucket load, he has everything in his game. People who say he rubbish or a donkey just annoy me when they havent watched him.

I'm sold

consider me your chief scout for this one pal. Rochdale is a good little club for getting strikers careers back on track. Dagnall, Le Fondre, Grant Holt, Ricky Lambert. O'Grady is just the latest in a soon to be long line.

Even if he isnt the greatest goal scorer he still causes panic in defences and creates lots of chances, get him signed!!
14/07/2011 21:25:00
from what you guys are saying he sounds like an exciting player, hope we can sign him.

Madine has been cleared.

Dezzy I don't care where you live. Ive seen him play. He's absolutely dyer. 13 goals in 51 games at Rotherham? He's played for 9 teams and he's 25 (clearly doesn't settle) he's had one prolific season and that was in League 2? But how many seasons has he has in league 2 where he has not been prolific. He is not going to fire us into Championship… and for those of you saying well he played on the left for some of the season… he got 1 league assist all season! Fact! So he doesn't create problems. Let's look elsewhere please!
