Newcastle signed Jonjo Shelvey from Swansea on Tuesday evening.
Newcastle United confirmed on their official website on Tuesday evening that Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has joined the club, with BBC Sport suggesting the fee is £12m.
The Magpies have already swooped for Bordeaux midfielder Henri Saivet this week, but manager Steve McClaren clearly wanted another midfield maestro to boost his side's fight against relegation.
Shelvey was paraded at St. James' Park before last night's game against Manchester United, and the England international was treated to an enthralling encounter, with the two teams playing out a 3-3 draw on Tyneside.
Now, Shelvey will be turning his attention towards this weekend's game against West Ham United - a club he was on the book with as a youngster.
The 23-year-old has blown hot and cold at Swansea, but it's clear that he has talent, with his superb range of passing earning him England recognition recently.
It's been a while since Newcastle snapped up an England international, and it's fair to say that Magpies fans were excited on Twitter after the signing of Shelvey was announced.
Newcastle supporters felt that Shelvey could make the team even better than the one which drew with United, though some had concerns about his mentality.
Fans were pleased to see money being spent on a proven Premier League player with England experience, and believe he could be a huge signing as Newcastle bid to stay in the top flight.
Here are some of the reactions from Newcastle fans on Twitter after signing Shelvey on Tuesday evening...
Shelvey for £12m seems like a gamble. Decent talent but hes supposed to be a worky ticket. Then again so were Bellamy & Barton... #NUFC— Brian Marshall (@Bri_Marsha) January 13, 2016
Keep playing like we did last night we won't go down! With Shelvey coming into the middle with his passing it will only improve us too #nufc— Ryan Anthony Moseley (@RyanMoseleynufc) January 13, 2016

Watching tape on Jonjo Shelvey's game earlier this season vs #NUFC. Wow. Took control of the whole game and midfield. Need that on this team— Aziz Khalil (@azizk47) January 13, 2016
Replace Colback with Shelvey we'll improve a lot! Massive signing #nufc— Ryan Anthony Moseley (@RyanMoseleynufc) January 13, 2016
The addition of Shelvey will surely improve our team even more, need to keep playing like that week in week out and we can stay up. #NUFC— NUFC HUB (@NUFCHub) January 12, 2016
What a singing Shelvey is. He can control a game in the middle. Good old English centre mid style. I've wanted him at #nufc for years.— Philip (@nufcphilip) January 12, 2016
Gaping holes in the centre of midfield again. Shelvey can't get the black and white shirt on fast enough for me. #NUFC— Marc Duffy (@MarcSDuffy) January 12, 2016
Honestly JonJo Shelvey is a massive signing for us. Great business as it's been ages since we signed an English international!!! #NUFC— Ian (@IanBainMMA) January 12, 2016
Do you think Shelvey will be a good signing for Newcastle?
