Sheffield Wednesday fans think that they have had a lucky escape after Stewart Downing turned them down.
Steve Bruce had reportedly wanted to sign Downing on a free to give himself greater options down the wing.
However, Wednesday fans were never keen on the idea of Downing playing at Hillsborough.
And most Owls fans are pleased that Downing has now gone elsewhere.

Thank God for that. Pensioners should only be sat in the stands— Tracy M (@TracyMI5) June 24, 2019
Be interesting to know why but at nearly 35 we need youth.— Andrew Gardner (@AndyJGard) June 24, 2019
Excellent news— Simon Morris (@BigAl_simon) June 24, 2019
Excellent news, if true. Downing is an utter donkey. And we've had plenty of those types of players down the years.— David Harpham (@deharpham) June 24, 2019
Best news I heard all day, what's next we sold nuhiu.........— gareth owen (@garetho75951588) June 24, 2019
Wednesday have had a fairly quiet summer so far, but are thought to be in the market for new additions.
Downing’s influence at Middlesbrough had dropped over the past season, but he still has a lot of qualities to be a threat at Championship level and should make a solid addition to Blackburn’s squad.
