Sheffield Wednesday are considering whether to make an improved offer for Rotherham striker Adam Le Fondre after having an initial bid of £200,000 rejected.

Owls manager Gary Megson is anxious to bring in a new striker in time for Saturday's npower League One opener against Rochdale following Neil Mellor's decision to return to Preston after scoring 20 goals for Wednesday while on loan last season.

Le Fondre, 24, who has fired 54 goals in the last two seasons for Rotherham, scored in his side's recent 2-1 friendly defeat to Wednesday and the npower League Two side are determined to hold out for a figure closer to £500,000 for their star player.

The Owls have also had a bid for Norwich striker Cody McDonald turned down, with the Canaries quoting a £600,000 fee for a player who spent last season on loan at Gillingham.
