Chelsea loan Mancienne to Wolves

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolverhampton Wanderers have signed Chelsea's England under-21 defender Michael Mancienne on a two-month loan.

The 20-year-old centre back, who agreed the deal on Monday afternoon, will be with the club until 29 December.

Mancienne has previously been on-loan with Wolves' Championship rivals Queens Park Rangers.

Wolves said they have been "unable to progress" a loan enquiry from MK Dons for Matt Murray as fellow goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has a slight back problem.

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy told the club's official website: "He could be involved in the squad tomorrow (against Swansea).

"But I wouldn't throw him in without having done some work as a unit beforehand.

"I want us to stop leaking 14 goals in five games so maybe there has to be a shake-up or re-jig of affairs. Let's see if we can get a formula that works."
