Have your say

GARY Megson is refusing to be drawn into a war of words with Rotherham over Adam Le Fondre.

The Owls manager prefers to talk in general terms after Wednesday made offers for Le Fondre and another, undisclosed, striker, saying: “We’re going for players, and their clubs have every entitlement to say what they want; it also works vice-versa with Wednesday.

“If we get to a point where both the opinions are the same, then a deal will get done, but that’s not where we are at the moment.”

He is also prepared for whatever twists and turns may lie ahead as the transfer window prepares to shut on Wednesday.

“There are times, when trying to sign a player, that you get really optimistic it’s going to happen, and it doesn’t,” he said. “There are other times when you think you’ve got no chance with the other club, but suddenly they have a complete change of heart and it goes through. So it’s very dangerous to start talking about other people’s clubs.”

Although aware of Rotherham manager Andy Scott’s comments on the Le Fondre affair, Megson said: “I think it would be unprofessional of me to talk about somebody else’s club. I would not be disparaging to Rotherham or to anybody else.”

Owls defender Jon Otsemobor has a scan today on the calf injury he suffered at Blackburn.
