Sheffield Wednesday have today recalled Jeremy Helan from his loan spell at Wolverhampton Wanderers to help ease their left-back shortage.
Helan joined the Owls’ Championship rivals on a temporary basis nearly two months ago, having found first-team football hard to come by at Hillsborough.
The former Manchester City youngster has started eight times for Wanderers and was expected to remain at Molineux for the remainder of the campaign.
But as part of the deal, the Owls inserted a 24-hour recall clause which can be exercised any time after 28 days.
Carlos Carvalhal’s side have now taken up that option, with Joe Bennett having suffered a knee problem in training on Sunday. Scans confirmed the Aston Villa loanee had torn a medial knee ligament, ruling him out of action for a minimum of a couple of weeks.
