Gregan himself commented, "All the doors have closed for me at Leeds. Dennis told everyone they had a chance, but I was soon called in and told I was not in his plans. The conversation lasted about thirty seconds. Although I was a regular last season, and the team's record speaks for itself and is there in black and white, there's no point arguing with the manager's decision. However, I wish the lads well, and I hope they can get out of trouble. It's nice to feel wanted, and I'm looking forward to playing first-team football again and working under John Sheridan. In fact, he's one of the reasons I decided to come to Oldham. I've played a few games for Leeds' reserve side, but it's way off the pace you need to play at senior level. I'm just looking forward to getting out there and playing."
