Barnsley sign O’Grady on loan
Sheffield Wednesday striker Chris O’Grady has joined
Championship rivals Barnsley on loan for the rest of the season to
bolster their fight against relegation.
O’Grady has made 60 appearances for the Owls since joining from
Rochdale in August 2011, scoring 13 goals.
He has scored six times this term, including the Owls’ winner
against the Reds at Oakwell back in December.
But his last appearance came on January 1st and Owls boss Dave
Jones has deemed the 27-year-old surplus to requirements this term
as he seeks to keep his 20th-placed side in the Championship.
He joins a Barnsley team currently sitting in 22nd in the table
– four points from safety – and is eligible for the Tykes’ trip to
Blackpool on Saturday.
