Sheffield Wednesday today signed Jeremy Helan from Manchester City for an undisclosed fee.
The left winger who was a loan success with the Owls has agreed a four-year deal.
Wednesday have beaten Wolves to land the 21-year-old after he also had talks with the Molineux club.
Owls boss Dave Jones said: “We are delighted to get the boy back because we have done a lot of hard work to get him here.
“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 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.”
