On his future, Shelvey told the official programme (via The Chronicle): “At the end of the day, I’m playing for a new contract now. I want to stay here, and hopefully a contract will be sorted. The kids love it up here – they’ve got their friends here.”

Newcastle fans have been discussing whether to give the central midfielder a new contract extension. Shelvey splits opinion down the middle due to his sporadic form and fitness concerns. But there is no doubting that he is an excellent player on his day.
