His departure is expected to shortly be confirmed by the Championship club. Helan’s contract was due to run out at the end of the 2016/17 season.
The left-sided player, a devout Muslim, was initially signed on a temporary basis by Dave Jones in November 2012, making his debut in a 2-0 home defeat to Leicester City. After impressing across two loan stints at Hillsborough, Helan, a product of Manchester City’s youth system, completed a permanent switch the following summer, penning a four-year contract.
