Manchester City are the latest Premier League club to come under scrutiny over the acquisition of young players with Rennes confirming they have referred the signing of Jeremy Helan to FIFA.

Seventeen-year-old defender Helan, the former captain of the France Under-16 side, joined City in 2008.

"We have referred this to FIFA," Dreossi told The Independent.

Dreossi claimed that Rennes had no contact with City before Helan's switch to Eastlands.

Chelsea were last week banned from registering players for the next two transfer windows after FIFA punished them for inducing Gael Kakuta to west London.

Chelsea have since confirmed they are to appeal FIFA's verdict.
