Newcastle United have made a £12million bid for Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey as they look to add some extra quality to their midfield.

The England international has fallen out of favour at the Welsh club, but Newcastle believe his quality on the ball in the centre of the park can add a further dimension to their play.

And a highlights package of the player’s passing and efforts on goal – including against Newcastle in the second gameof this season – show just what Magpies boss Steve McClaren hopes he will be getting if Shelvey puts pen to paper today.
