Michael's The Mancienne For Forest!

Michael's The Mancienne For Forest!

With quiet efficiency, Nottingham Forest Manager Stuart Pearce jetted back from the Reds' Portuguese training camp to renew acquaintances with Michael Mancienne.

The former Chelsea man had been a regular for Stuart Pearce's England U21 side, even though his chances at Stamford Bridge had been limited. Brian Eastick and Steve Wigley are also familiar with the 6 foot 1 inch defender after their time in the England Youth set up.

With loan spells at QPR and Wolves, Mancienne proved to be a reliable defensive option for Stuart Pearce and the U21's - making 30 appearances over a 4 year spell.

Despite signing a contract extension at Chelsea, the 26 year old made a permanent switch to Hamburg in May 2011 for a fee believed to be circa 2m Euros.

With just under a year of his 4 year contract at Hamburg remaining, the versatile defender had made just under 50 appearances in the Bundesliga before Forest swooped, to make him their 5th new signing of pre-season.

Clearly keen to link back up with Pearce & Co, Mancienne signed a 3 year contract with the Reds. He certainly adds experience and depth to the Forest squad, able to play anywhere along the back four and equally comfortable in a defensive midfield position.

Welcome to Nottingham Forest Michael - we wish you every success with the Reds!
