Shrewsbury have raided Manchester City to sign Jeremy Helan on a month-long loan deal.

The France Under-19 international is comfortable either on the left wing or at left-back although he is set to feature as a wide man for Town, with his debut likely to come in Saturday's home clash against in-form Colchester.

Helan, 20, made his first-team debut for Manchester City as an extra-time substitute in last month's Capital One Cup defeat to Aston Villa.

He enjoyed a month-long loan stay with Carlisle last season where he also appeared twice off the bench.
