Sheffield Wednesday fans are absolutely delighted for their former captain, who secured a free transfer to Sunderland on Friday.
Glenn Loovens has officially signed for Sunderland after five wonderful years at Hillsborough.
The former Owls captain was out of contract this summer, allowing him to shop around for his next move as a free agent.
His pace had completely gone in his final season at Hillsborough, but his leadership and experience will be sorely missed, and fans have only good things to say about the 34 year-old.
The move to Sunderland makes perfect sense as well, as the pace is much lower in League One.
Wednesday fans may be getting a bit impatient with the lack of summer business, but they’re all in high spirits over this deal, praising the big defender and reminiscing about his best moments, mostly his dancing after the playoff semi-final.

Great signing for #SAFC. Incredible servant, fantastic captain and top pro respected by all. Leader of defence which kept club record clean sheets in consecutive seasons. Maybe not up to pace of Champ now but will be class in L1. Type of character you want to fill your club with.

Good luck Glenn. And thanks for giving my club credibility when we weren’t far from our worst. Now get #safc up. They deserve far better than what they’ve had in recent years. Show their fans what you’re all about 👍🏻

Top class defender and an absolute leader! Will be the best centre back in League One without a shadow of a doubt. A shrewd signing
