Rochdale duo Chris O’Grady and Scott Wiseman have been linked with summer moves to Hillsborough.

The duo are on Owls boss Gary Megson’s hit list this close season as he looks to add nine new faces to bolster the Wednesday squad for a promotion push next season, according to the Sheffield Star.

Both players featured for the Spotland club as they put Wednesday to the sword with a 2-1 victory in Lancashire this season – one of Megson’s first games in charge.

He clearly liked what he saw and could follow up his interest with bids for the duo in the coming weeks.

Former Leicester City and Rotherham United hitman O’Grady is a powerful forward and scored nine goals for Dale from 49 appearances this season, helping them to the verge of the play-offs.

Wiseman, 25, came through the Hull City youth ranks but has come of age since joining Keith Hill’s side, making 41 appearances last season as a full-back.

Wednesday have already signed midfielder David Prutton from Swindon Town and centre-back Rob Jones from Scunthorpe United.
