Last week's Vital Sheffield Wednesday poll asked who Wednesday fans wanted to captain the Owls, and defender Graham Coughlan was the clear favourite.
The former-Plymouth Argyle man polled 70 per cent of the votes over the last week, and was winner by a clear margin.
It was well documented that Coughlan didn't favour his role as club captain, despite his one-off appearance in the armband against former club Plymouth Argyle this season.
But he recently admitted that he was talked in to the job by manager Paul Sturrock, after fans had called for the captaincy to be given to the centre back.
Coughlan said: ''He's asked me to take it on. Glenn's done a tremendous job, but the gaffer just feels Glenn is young and it might benefit his game and give him a little break.''
Runner-up was former captain Glenn Whelen, who has been captain for most of this season following the injury to Lee Bullen. Glenn polled 18 per cent of the votes.
Manager Paul Sturrock has said Glenn is only young and will be a future captain for the side. He already captains the Republic of Ireland under-21 side.
Lee Bullen was next with just six per cent of the votes. The former Dunfermline defender captained the Owls to promotion last season, but has suffered long injury lay-outs this season, and hasn't been able to win his place back in the team.
Coughlan said: ''Glenn and Lee are still big figures in the dressing room for me and we've always got 11 big figures out there.''
Goalkeeper David Lucas collected two per cent of the votes, with midfielder Chris Brunt also collecting one per cent of the votes. Three per cent of voters chose none of the aforementioned players.
