'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mancienne signs for Hamburg

Michael Mancienne will not be returning to Molineux.

The 23-year-old who has spent three loans spells and the best part of two-and-a-half years with Wolves on loan from Chelsea has been sold to German side Hamburg.

Mancienne made 60 appearances in total for Wolves and will join up with his new team-mates in Germany after England's European Under-21 Championship campaign.

'Hamburg are a big club with a lot of tradition and some fantastic fans,' Mancienne said to the BBC.

'It's a big challenge for me to be able to play for this club. It would be great if I could play a part in helping Hamburg get back into Europe.'

Vital Wolves Comment: His impact this season wasn't as great as previous years, but with the transfer thought to be around 1.75million it's a shame we couldn't have signed him permanently.

But perhaps we could have done? Surely we would have been first option for Mancienne, so perhaps Mick McCarthy decided against a move?

Good to get him off the pay packet... Jones, Bia and a couple more wantaways and we can start to finance those 3 defensive players and 1 creative midfielder... Henry can leave too if he's any intention of playing like he did against Blackburn... easily replaced

Good call on Henry Ad but Mancienne, especially if that was the price, I would have liked to have kept. His first two spells were much better- last season his chances in the side were greatly reduced by injury and it effectively unfolded as a stop-start event. I don't think he was able to find his feet and there were some very poor errors but that can be said for any of our defenders. I don't think he is strong enough for the midfield unless he is playing tightly right infront of the back four, and despite earlier promise he does not look convincing in the middle. At full back however I think his positioning and pace always put him in a good place and once again at that price, there are not many players you will get for that kind of money. It was some time ago that he said he wanted a club to call home and whilst he grew up at Chelsea from when he was a kid- they were never going to allow him much of a look. At Wolves I think he showed great promise in his first two spells but if a club has actively chased him down, he has the chance of first team football every week and designs on playing European football on a regular basis it must have been a pretty easy decision for him to make. Appreciate the effort- good players who needs regular football to realize that potential so good luck to him.

Ungratefull because i dont rate a player ???? , Mancienne went to Hamburg because he has a better chance of european football the following year , Chelsea knackered his career and if not for his injury i have no doubt Wolves would have made a bid for him but his perfomances dropped since he got injured ! , Ridgewell is a dirty player and not much ability , he only looked decent for Blues because of Johnson and Danns being immense for them ! , No suprise when they got injured Ridgewell showed how ****e he really is ! , And ungrateful ??? Your a Chelsea fan , your club never lets promising kids have a look in , you would rather go n splash 50 million on a player thats not performing instead of letting Sturridge have a run lol , Its clubs like yours that wrecks the chances of good English kids coming through , Have fun next year with your next manager , Oh yeah you already have a manager ROMAN THE RUSSIAN !!!!

Not too sad to see him go. Too lightweight for a centre half, and a bit directionless for a midfielder IMO

I cant agree - at only 2M euros we will rue not signing him IMO. I watched him play captaining the U21s a few days ago and still cant believe we failed to go for him at that price. I agree he had a relatively poor season compared to previous but this was largely injury related - at his age and with his experience it should have been a no-brainer.... I expect many will disagree but wait and see what he will be worth after a few seasons at Hamburg.
