Fletcher discusses turning down Norwich move

Fletcher discusses turning down Norwich move Sheffield Wednesday striker Steven Fletcher has revealed he rejected a transfer to Norwich City at the eleventh hour, prior to joining the Owls. Fletcher made the move to Wednesday in the summer of 2016, having been released by Sunderland. Three years on, the Scottish striker remains at the club and he is expected to be a key man next season, as they push for promotion under Steve Bruce. Things could have been very different, however, had it not been for Barry Bannan’s input. Fletcher’s club and international colleague persuaded him to make the switch to Wednesday when he was driving to Norwich to secure a move.
