Trustworthy Rumour: Mancienne on his way to Wolves

The Independent today writes that Michael Mancienne finally is on his way back to Wolves.

But it will again be on a season long loan. The clubs did not come to an agreement on the fee for a permanent transfer. Chelsea FC didn’t back down from the £5M pricetag and Wolves were not prepared to pay more than £3 million according to Sam Wallace at the Independent – a paper I find more reliable than the gossiping tabloids.

They report that the issue about a permanent sale of Mancienne went all the way to the owner Abramowich, who pointed thumbs down at £3 million and the permanent deal was off. Mancienne himself is said to have wanted a permanent deal all summer after it was known that he was down in the pecking order of the club – even after the 18-year-old Dutchman Jeffrey Bruma.

If this rumour is correct and nobody else – except Hill – is going out, Wolves now have their 25 man squad and no more players will join in. I find that a little peculiar, because I can notice a lack of strikers.

On the other hand Vokes is just a couple of weeks from recovery and Bristol City has signed a new tall striker. So it wouldn’t surprise me if the deal with Bristol for Sam Vokes would be cancelled. After all he has only played for 13 minutes and the cancelling of the deal would be in both clubs best interest.

  1. Read that too Paddy.
    I’m glad it’s Mancienne again, and after this season, we’ll be able to sign him on a permanent deal, or at least that’s what we all expect!
