Graham Completes Bradford Switch

Out-of-favour Owls striker David Graham has completed a six-month loan move to League One side Bradford City after a permanent move to Blackpool looked on the cards.

Wednesday boss Paul Sturrock yesterday accepted a bid for the former Wigan and Torquay man from Blackpool, but Graham has turned down the move in favour of a loan switch to the Bantams.

The Scot fell out-of-favour with Paul Sturrock and Owls fans alike after moving accross the penines to Hillsborough from Wigan almost a year ago.

Graham enjoyed a successful loan spell with Bradford's League One rivals Huddersfield Town towards the end of last season and helped them secure a play-off place bagging nine goals in 18 appearances for the Yorkshire club.

But Sturrock refused to allow Town permission to speak with the striker about the possibility of a permanent move to the Galpharm this summer.

Graham joined the Owls for an undisclosed fee from Wigan Athletic in August 2005. He netted just three goals in his 26 outings for the club.

The striker will stay at Valley Parade until 1st January 2007.

WTF?

What an odd turn of events after Wednesday announced they had accepted an offer from Blackpool to sign him permanently. Damnation is all I can say on the matter.
