Shelvey’s current deal with Newcastle runs out in the summer of 2021, but it has been reported that the former Liverpool midfielder has agreed fresh terms with the Magpies.
Shelvey has been on the books of Newcastle since January 2016 when he joined from Swansea City for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £12 million.
The 27-year-old has been a very good player for the Magpies over the years, although there have been occasions when he has had to fight for his place in the team.
According to WhoScored, the England international midfielder has scored five goals in 15 Premier League appearances for Newcastle so far this season, while during the 2018-19 campaign, he made 10 starts and six substitute appearances in the league, scoring one goal and providing one assist in the process.
