Newcastle United supporters urge club to sign Jonjo Shelvey from Swansea City on Twitter

Newcastle United are reportedly interested in signing Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey in the January transfer window.

Newcastle United supporters are keen for their club to follow through with their reported interest in Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey.

According to the Daily Mail, Newcastle will launch a bid for Shelvey in the January transfer window, and it seems that his arrival at St. James’ Park would be most welcome.

The England international midfielder is a player who Newcastle’s supporters have generally been impressed by, and they feel that he would enhance the quality of their starting line up.

Steve McClaren is keen to improve Newcastle’s options in midfield, as it is an area he is still short on quality in.

The Magpies do not have a wealth of players in the centre of the pitch, and Shelvey is said to figure prominently on their wishlist.

The Swansea midfielder has been in fine form over the past two seasons, and he has developed into a very talented player.

Newcastle fans would certainly be keen for him to join their squad, and they have urged the club to make a bid.

Here is the best reaction from Newcastle fans on social media site Twitter to the Shelvey rumours.
