The latest poll on Vital Sheffield Wednesday asked whether Owls fans would like to keep on-loan stopper Iain Turner on a permanent deal - and the results are in.
A whopping 95 per cent of users, rather unsurprisingly, voted in favour of keeping the young Scot at Hillsborough after a strong of fine performances between the sticks.
In fact the Owls haven't lost a game since the stopper arrived at S6 on a one-month loan deal from Everton - and also managed to keep their first clean sheet of the season in the midweek victory over Colchester last week.
Turner arrived at the club after Wednesday boss Brian Laws fell out of favour with fellow loanee Mark Crossley, who later returned to train with Fulham following Turner's arrival, and he's been arguably the best player for the club during his five match spell.
And his performances have resulted in him being called up to the full Scotland squad - albeit as the fourth choice - for the first time.
The majority of Owls fans would undoubtedly like to see him become a permanent fixture at S6 next season - but the situation seems to mirror that of another keeper who came on loan to Wednesday from a merseyside club last term.
Scott Carson produced a string of man-of-the-match performances in between the sticks when he arrived from Liverpool for the back end of the season. But Owls boss Paul Sturrock waited until the last minute to get his man on another loan deal, and eventually lost out to Charlton Athletic.
New boss Brian Laws will be wary of not making the same mistake again and will want to get the number one jersey tied up as soon as possible - a move that could hinder Turner's move to S6 with Richard Wright rumoured to be leaving Goodison Park in the summer.
Wright's move away from the club could pave the way for Turner to become second choice at the Toffees begind Tim Howard - a role he may wish to see out if it involves a slice of Premiership action.
Whatever happens with Turner this summer, the Scot will be a hero among Owls fans for his performances in the blue and white stripes (or grey goalkeepers jersey?!) - especially against Yorkshire rivals Leeds United - which could well play a part in their relegation.
