According to a report from the Northern Echo, Newcastle ace Jonjo Shelvey is aware that West Ham are interested in signing him.

The Magpies midfielder gave the Hammers a first-hand glimpse of what he is capable of Saturday. He scored his side’s third goal and ran the show from the middle of the park.

The 27-year-old joined Newcastle from Swansea City in January 2016 for a fee believed to be worth £12 million, according to BBC Sport.

On his day, Shelvey is a magnificent player, and it could be argued that he would make a huge difference to West Ham.

 

The Englishman is a Hammers fan, so a move to the London Stadium would surely appeal to him.

According to the Northern Echo, the east London outfit have made an enquiry for Shelvey’s services. And the player himself is aware of West Ham’s interest.

The former Liverpool and Charlton man would be a useful addition for the Hammers. Toon boss Steve Bruce will surely be keen to keep hold of him, however. Especially after Saturday’s performance.

Shelvey’s contract expires in the summer of 2021 though. So a decision will need to be made on his future very soon either way.
