Manchester City's Jeremy Helan joins Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday have signed versatile winger Jeremy Helan for an undisclosed fee from Manchester City.

The 21-year-old Frenchman reportedly held talks with Wolves,  but has chosen to return to Hillsborough, where he played 28 times on loan last season.

Helan, who made just one substitute appearance for City, has agreed a four-year contract with the Owls.

"We have done a lot of hard work to get him here," Wednesday manager Dave Jones told the club website. 

"Other clubs were aware of what he did here last season and wanted him on board, but he really enjoyed his time here and wanted to come back.

"To get Jeremy on a permanent transfer represents a really good signing for the football club, and is a statement of intent because he is a really talented footballer. He is young and has a terrific future in the game."
