be heading to Slovakia to join Slovan Bratislava, but the defender’s move has not been confirmed.

23-year-old Hélan has made 22 appearances in all competitions for the Owls this season, mostly

young, talented player. He talked with me and said he wanted to play more – it’s a good move for

all parties.”

The Owls manager added: “He is a player we trust and we want him to play. We can recall him with

28 days notice, but I think this move is very good for everyone.”
