Wolves seal Mancienne loan deal

Wolves have re-signed Chelsea defender Michael Mancienne on a season-long loan, after the centre-back spent two months with the club last season.

The player becomes Wolves' seventh capture of the summer, and chief executive Jez Moxey says the club has not stopped its recruitment drive.

Mancienne trained with the Wolves squad while the clubs worked out the financial details of the deal.

The 21-year-old was called up for the full England squad last November.

Moxey said: "It's been a long, hard summer in terms of preparing for the Premier League and bringing in new players, and we're still looking for more even now."

During his previous 10-game spell at Molineux, the youngster made a huge impression in the west Midlands.

Chelsea have stipulated an emergency release clause in the deal, which would see Mancienne return to Stamford Bridge in January should the Blues require him.

For that reason, he has not been granted permission to play in the Carling Cup. He cannot feature in league matches against Chelsea as per Premier League rules.
