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.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
