Fans love him and unsurprisingly, he is held in the highest regard by his Owls team mates.

That was apparent after the skipper posted a message on his instagram account regarding his leaving Wednesday at the end of this season.

Loovens posted: "My time has come to move on. I enjoyed my 4,5 years stay at this great club and want to thank everyone of you that made it so special. I wish you guys all the best for the future and hope that you get what you deserve."
