Sheffield Wednesday today announced the signing of Steven Fletcher on a free transfer, with the Scotland international committing his long-term future to the club with a four-year deal.

The move is a massive coup for The Owls as they look to secure promotion to the Premier League next season, after missing out to Hull City in the play-off final last term.

Fletcher was a free transfer after his contract at Sunderland had expired and spent the end of last season out on loan at French giants Marseille. He has cost millions in transfer fees over the years and has played Premier League football for the past seven seasons.

The 29-year-old looks like a fantastic coup for Wednesday, with the idea of him, Gary Hooper and Fernando Forestieri in attack filling Owls fans with real excitement ahead of the 2016-17 Championship campaign.

A sometimes divisive character there is no doubt how the Wednesday fans feel about the move on Twitter.

The overwhelming majority are ecstatic at the signing and are hopeful that he can help fire the club one better than last season.

Here is some of the best reaction…
