Newcastle complete Shelvey signing

Newcastle United have completed the signing of midfielder Jonjo Shelvey on a five-and-a-half-year deal from Swansea.

The 23-year-old, who has also played for Charlton and Liverpool, completed a medical on Tyneside on Tuesday and has signed for a fee believed to be in the region of £12m.

The England international, who has had a difficult season at the Liberty Stadium where he has struggled to make the starting line-up in recent weeks, is Steve Mclaren's second signing within the last 24 hours following the arrival of Henri Saivet from Bordeaux.

"I'm delighted to welcome Jonjo to Newcastle United. He has great experience for a young English central midfielder and he is a current England international, so I'm certain he will be a great addition to the squad," the Magpies boss said.

"He is a player we have admired for some time and we're very pleased that we've now been able to bring him here."

Shelvey added: "I'm very excited to be here. I'm so glad that it's finally done. I drove up through the night to be here, so it's been a manic 24 hours but it's all been worth it to come here and play for this great club."

Shelvey and Saivet are the first of what are expected to be several transfer window arrivals at St James's Park this month as the Magpies look to lift themselves out of the relegation zone.
