Shelvey holds talks with Rafa

from Coverdale’s latest piece in the Sun

Quote:‘Jonjo Shelvey held showdown talks with Rafa Benitez over his role at Newcastle.

'The frustrated midfielder, 27, has not started a game since November.

‘And SunSport understands Shelvey went to Benitez’s office last week to ask why he was being constantly overlooked.

‘The Magpies manager replied by telling the ex-England international he was not fit enough.

‘But Shelvey questioned how he could be expected to be match fit when he was not given game time.

‘Following the frank exchange, the ex-Liverpool and Swansea star was an unused substitute in Newcastle’s 1-0 win at Leicester on Friday night.

‘But there are now serious doubts over his future — with West Ham leading the £20million chase to land him this summer.

‘He is contracted until 2021 but Benitez could now be keen to cash in.’

Take £20m good price doubt they would get that much maybe £12-15m?

RE: Shelvey holds talks with Rafa

must admit i certainly wont be sad to see him leave, never really taken to him at all i find him lazy, moody and a bit of a waster, can pick out a pass..... but not enough goals, not enough assists, not worth 70k a week

I love watching Shelvey and think he has so much to offer. A unique player that excites.

He does however have some kind of mentalist issue that holds him back. If he does move on I will be sad to see him go, and the penny may well drop and we would have to suffer seeing him finally hit his potential elsewhere.

I'd definitely want to keep him. He offers us something that no other player has.

Hopefully he heeds Rafa's advice, gets himself physically fit and gets back on the pitch.

Bit of a liability with his temperament. Gives away daft freekicks like Diame, Hayden and Ki. If we can get a decent upgrade lets go for it.

I think we already have one in Longstaff. He looked class before getting injured.

Yeah but we need more if we are to be more Premier League standard.

If Hayden is on his way this summer, as we are led to believe he is, then we definitely need to keep Shelvey. We're not blessed with too much talent in centre midfield so retaining the services of one of the best passers of the ball we've had in a long time is essential.

Yes, Longstaff played extremely well during his brief run in the team but we need depth and more importantly we need options. Shelvey is a unique option for us and, when fit, we are better with him on the pitch.

Diame, Ki, Longstaff, Shelvey, Hayden are our 5 CMs. Can't afford to lose Jonjo.

There's a channel for that. Allegedly.
