John Gregory has again raided Chelsea by signing 18 year old defender, Michael Mancienne on a months loan. Mancienne will go straight into the Rangers squad for the home game against Derby County tomorrow night.

The young defender has captained England at Under 18 level and joins fellow teenager Jimmy Smith at Loftus Road for a loan spell.
Mancienne was part of Chelsea’s pre season tour of USA and has been an unused substitute for the games against Liverpool, Man City and Blackburn this season. Mancienne can operate as a centre back and also right back which are his favoured positions.

A delighted John Gregory told the Official website:

‘He is a fantastic prospect. Michael will go straight into the squad on Tuesday and it’s a great chance for the QPR fans to see one of Chelsea and England’s – brightest young talents in action.’
