Kenny Jackett sings the praises of Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Jeremy Helan

Wolverhampton Wanderers have signed Jeremy Helan on loan from Sheffield Wednesday.

Kenny Jackett has heaped praise on Jeremy Helan on Wolverhampton Wanderers’ official website, after his side beat Derby County 2-1 yesterday.

Helan only joined Wolves from Sheffield Wednesday in midweek, but he was thrown straight into the first-team.

The left-sided player impressed on his first appearance, with his work-rate and energy proving to be a threat throughout.

And Jackett said: “Jeremy suits our system and gave us natural balance which at times during the course of the season, mainly due to injuries, we have lacked. 

“He has good experience in the division as well.

“Physically he could handle Christie as well who we couldn’t handle coming down that side in the first game.

“It is a very good start for him.”

Many Wednesday supporters were disappointed when manager Carlos Carvalhal allowed Helan to leave on a temporary basis and he quickly proved his quality yesterday.

Wolves have been looking for a player to fill the left wing void in their squad ever since Jordan Graham was ruled out with injury, and the initial signs are that Helan could provide very good cover.

The 23-year-old was a constant threat, but it was his teammate George Saville who took the headlines.

Saville scored both of Wolves goals to ensure that they collected a much needed three points against the Rams.

The win was Wolves’ first for seven matches, and it has lifted them up to 13th place in the Championship table.

Jackett’s side’s next match comes against Middlesbrough on 4 March.
