Jérémy Hélan (born 9 May 1992) is a French footballer playing as a left back/left midfielder for Sheffield Wednesday signed from Manchester City for an undisclosed fee on 12 July 2013.

Career[edit]

Born in Clichy-la-Garenne, Hélan started his career in the youth team of AS. Jeunesse d' Aubervilliers from the age of eleven and stayed with the club until 2007. He then joined the Clairefontaine academy for a season, before joining Stade Rennais.[1]

Manchester City[edit]

He controversially[2] signed for Manchester City in February 2009 after deciding to see out the remainder of his professional contract with Rennes, and was accordingly suspended from international football for a month.[3] For the remainder of the 2008–09 season and during the next two seasons Hélan established himself as a regular player in the City Elite Development Squad. He made his debut for the club on 25 September as a 106th minute substitute as they lost a Football League Cup third round match to Aston Villa.[4]

Carlisle United (loan)[edit]

In October 2011, Hélan joined League One side Carlisle United on a one-month loan deal.[5] He made his professional debut for his new loan club in a 3–0 win over Yeovil Town at Huish Park after coming on as a substitute for Jon-Paul McGovern.[6]

Shrewsbury Town (loan)[edit]

On 25 October 2012, Hélan joined League One side Shrewsbury Town on a one-month loan deal.[7] He made his debut two days later, in a 2–2 draw at home to Colchester United.[8]

Sheffield Wednesday[edit]

On 22 November, he signed on loan for Sheffield Wednesday on a one-month loan deal.[9] He made his debut two days later, playing the full 90 minutes in a 2–0 defeat at home to Leicester City.[10] He scored his first goal for the club on 22 December in a 2–0 win at home to Charlton Athletic.[11] On 29 December, in a match against Huddersfield Town which ended 0–0, he was involved in a bizarre incident where he was "twice booked" a yellow card by the referee but did not get sent off as the first yellow card was mistakenly given to his teammate Michail Antonio instead of Hélan for diving.[12]

On 30 January 2013, Hélan rejoined Sheffield Wednesday on loan until the end of the season.[13]

The pacey Frenchman, who has also enjoyed loan spells with Carlisle United and Shrewsbury Town, attracted the attention of a host of clubs after rising to the fore with the Owls but has committed to Hillsborough until the summer of 2017[14]
