24-year-old footballer quits the game to 'concentrate on religion'

Jeremy Helan is to quit football at the age of 24 to devote himself to religion, The Star can reveal. It is understood the Frenchman, who featured in Wednesday’s EFL Cup defeat at Cambridge United last month, had been thinking about calling it a day for some time.
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.
