Left-sided player Jeremy Helan has today left Sheffield Wednesday by ‘mutual consent’, the Championship club have confirmed.
It is understood the 24-year-old, who racked up 145 appearances for the Owls, netting four goals, plans on retiring to devote his life to religion.
Helan, who made his 100th start for Wednesday in their EFL Cup defeat to Cambridge United last month, is a devout Muslim and reportedly intends to travel to Saudi Arabia to follow his faith more closely.
The 24-year-old Frenchman started his career at Manchester City but joined the Owls on a permanent basis in the summer of 2013 after impressing on loan.
Helan found first-team football hard to come by under Carlos Carvalhal and spent two months on loan at Wolverhampton Wanders last season.
