WOLVES WANT MANCIENNE
Former Premier league club Wolverhampton Wanderers are looking at the possibility of bringing former Chelsea defender Michael Mancienne on a permanent deal from Hamburg in the summer. The club were recently relegated from the Premier league after a very poor season under Mick McCarthy, who was replaced by Terry Connor.
However, he was unable to stop the club from getting relegated. As a result, he also did not get the job permanently, as the club appointed Stale Solbakken in his position. It is understood that Stale Solbakken is looking at bringing Michael Mancienne to the Molineux in what would be his fourth spell at the club.
Michael Mancienne has already spent three spells at the club on a loan deal from Chelsea. He recently made his permanent move to German club Hamburg, but it is thought that the England under 21 star is looking at returning to England to stay closer with his family. It is expected that the former under 21 international will cost around £ 3 million for the Championship club. The number of clubs are looking at the possibility of signing Wolves defender Roger Johnson, who was one of the culprits responsible for the club's relegation last season. Michael Mancienne would replace Roger Johnson is that is the case.
Michael Mancienne's first spell at the Molineux came back in 2008. He further went on to have two spells on loan at the club during the reign of former manager Mick McCarthy. Wolves tried a lot to sign the player on a permanent basis, but they failed to agree a fee with Chelsea. In the end, he moved to German club Hamburg in a reported deal worth around £ 2 million. A number of the high-profile Wolves players are being linked with a move to Premier league clubs.
