Jeremy Helan's seven games to earn Wolves deal

Sport | Published:

Wolves will wait until the summer to decide if they make a permanent move for left-side loanee Jeremy Helan.

The Frenchman is on loan from Sheffield Wednesday until the end of the season. He has started all five matches since joining the club – and boss Kenny Jackett is pleased with what he's seen so far.

Helan has one year left on his Hillsborough contract, and much will depend on whether the Owls win promotion to the Premier League.

They are currently sixth in the table and travel to Molineux on the final day of the campaign, a game Helan is ineligible for, meaning he has seven games left to impress.

Jackett said: "He has helped us in terms of balance. He's a very athletic player.

"He gives up options in a wide left position and as an attacking left back, which at the right time we'll need as well.

"I've been pleased with him, he's been a good addition for us.

"Having all of a sudden, with George Saville and Kortney Hause there, three left-footers, I feel the side does look more balanced and distribution has improved because of it.

"At the moment there have been no discussions about Helan.


"It depends on our overall situation.

"There haven't been any discussions with Sheffield Wednesday but I have been pleased with what he's done."

Another situation to resolve in the summer is that of Tommy Rowe.

The utility man is out of contract, and having been sent to Doncaster on loan it would appear his time with Wolves is coming to an end.


However, Jackett said no decision had yet been made

"His contract is up in the summer and we haven't spoken to him yet about the future," Jackett said.

"He's had a good amount of games this season, with his Scunthorpe loan.

"Between ourselves, Tommy and his agent we will sum up the situation at the end of the season."
