Newcastle are starting to make their moves in the transfer market with a bid reportedly just turned down for Napoli center-back Kalidou Koulibaly and that’s good – so hopefully we can get some players in very early in the transfer window which opens in a couple of days time.
One position we are very weak in – especially since it looks like Vurnon Anita will be out for some time – is in central midfield and we don’t really have a recognized player who has replaced Yohan Cabaye – who left Newcastle almost two years ago.
Jonjo Shelvey – available in January?
That’s one reason we are in trouble at the moment, because we have neglected the playing squad for some time and have assumed they can get by.
But this year we have not got by at all – and we were almost relegated in May – and we are currently 3rd bottom of the league going into 2016.
The goods news is that it’s looking more and more like Swansea could be willing to sell Jonjo Shelvey next month and he’s being heavily linked with Newcastle United.
There are reports today that Newcastle are now favorites to sign Shelvey, so hopefully Newcastle will make a move for him very soon – at least we hope they do.
Jonjo has played for all the England Youth sides through U21 and has six full caps for his country, and since joining Swansea from Liverpool two years ago, he´s made 95 appearances with 10 goals and 18 assists for the Swans – he´s a good player.
He was signed by Swansea in the summer of 2013 from Liverpool for around £6M and the news in the last week or two is that Shelvey wants to leave Swansea City in the January transfer window.
