West Ham 'target' Â£12m Newcastle midfielder in January transfer window
Boyhood West Ham United fan Jonjo Shelvey is a target for David Moyes, according to a report.
Moyes is reporting lining up a move for the Newcastle United midfielder, signed from Swansea City for Â£12million almost two years ago.
And The Mirror claim that West Ham's manager has identified Romford-born Shelvey as a player who can improve his team.
Shelvey, dismissed twice this season, has not been a regular starter for Rafa Benitez this term.
The 25-year-old returned to United's starting XI on Wednesday night after serving a two-game suspension.
Shelvey grew up supporting West Ham.
Speaking earlier this year, the England international said: "I follow West Ham – it’s where I am from.
"But obviously since I have been here at (Newcastle), this club has grown on me and I have a massive love for this club now.”
