Jeremy Helan features for Man City U18

Manchester City fielded controversial French signing Jeremy Helan in their U18 draw with Sheffield United.

Helan is the subject of a transfer row with Rennes, but was impressive in the 1-1 draw. Another French teen, Emerick Hippias made his debut, having been signed in the summer from FC Mantois 78.

Academy coach Andy Welsh told City's website: "We were positive throughout and given that we had a couple of first-year scholars in the side I thought we coped excellently against a tough team. Our midfield three of Mitchell, Benali and Elabdellaoui stepped it up in the second half and Jeremy Helan was a real threat down the left flank. Emerick Hippias also looked right at home when we brought him for his debut with the Under 18s."
