Jonjo Shelvey set for talks with Swansea over £6m switch from Liverpool

By Jack de Menezes

Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey will meet Swansea officials later today to discuss personal terms after the two clubs agreed a £6million fee, Press Association Sport understands.

The 21-year-old has been linked with a move away from Anfield, with Norwich, Crystal Palace and West Ham all believed to be interested in his signature.

But it seems Swansea have stolen a march on their Premier League rivals, with Press Association Sport reporting that they have agreed a £6m fee for the England international, who made his debut for Roy Hodgson’s side last November in the friendly against Sweden.

A move to Swansea comes with the added incentive of Europa League football, something that Liverpool cannot offer this season, but his lack of first-team appearances is seen as the reason for his decision to leave the Reds.

Crystal Palace still remain optimistic that the can sign Shelvey for £5m according to the Evening Standard, hoping that a return to London will sway the former Charlton man as they prepare for life back in the top-flight.
