Chris O'Grady: Could make move permanent

O'Grady, 27, is currently on loan at Barnsley from npower Championship relegation rivals Sheffield Wednesday until the end of the season.

But the former Leicester man says he will let his football do the talking and the rest will take care of itself.

"I'll definitely assess it at the end of the season, but the infrastructure in the club, well it can't get any better," he told The Star.

"The players couldn't be any more accommodating and the manager (David Flitcroft) is just perfect for me. I'm enjoying it and I'm enjoying my football, which is the most important thing.

"You want to prove that you're a better player than your club believes you are. If I'm not regarded as an important player for the team then you've just got to prove people wrong."

He added: "But if I perform then that [a new deal] will take care of itself."

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.
