Mancienne makes Hamburg move

The England Under-21 international, 23, made 17 appearances for
Wolves last season and was enjoying his third loan spell at
Molineux. He had also previously had two stints on loan at Queens
Park Rangers and made just six first-team appearances during his
time at Chelsea. Mancienne underwent a medical at Hamburg on
Tuesday before finalising a transfer which is believed to be worth
in the region of £3million. Capable of playing in defence or
midfield, Mancienne expressed his delight at clinching a switch to
the Bundesliga. “HSV is a big, well established club with fantastic
fans,” Mancienne told the club’s official website. “It’s a great
challenge for me to be playing for this club.” Hamburg’s sporting
director Frank Arnesen knows Mancienne from his own time at
Stamford Bridge and is happy to have added the player to the club’s
squad. Arnesen said: “I have followed his development for years and
I’ve been aware of his great potential.”
