Chris O'Grady: Switched to Barnsley on loan

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.

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
