Jeremy Helan encouraged by two qualities he's seen in Wolverhampton Wanderers

Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

The winger has impressed since joining on loan from Sheffield Wednesday.

Jeremy Helan believes Wolverhampton Wanderers' young squad has the mentality to push on in the final stages of the campaign - and beyond.

The winger, who's on loan from Sheffield Wednesday until May, has recorded two wins and two draws from his first five appearances for Kenny Jackett's men, who've played three of the top five and play-off chasing Birmingham City in that time.

Wolves finished seventh last term but have struggled in the absence of their departed duo Bakary Sako, Benik Afobe - sold to Crystal Palace and Bournemouth respectively - as well as long-term injury victim Nouha Dicko.

However, Helan has seen enough in his short time at Molineux to suggest there is more to come from what is one of the Championship's youngest squads. 

"The two qualities I see here in the squad are hunger and ambition," said the Frenchman, who even at 23 is one of Wolves' senior players, via the club website.

"That ambition is what will drive us forward and form the basis of what is to come.

"The desire is there to do well from the first to the last minute and I think that is why we have scored some goals late in games recently.

"A team that can pick up results late in games is one that never gives up and that is the mentality we have here."

Wolves have climbed back into the Championship's top half following their recent run, but are 14 points behind Helan's parent club, Wednesday, who currently occupy the final play-off place.

As it stands, the former Manchester City player is due to return to Hillsborough this summer, when he'll have a year to run on his contract.
