Shelvey considered a top target for West Ham in January

  Shelvey considered a top target for West Ham in January David Moyes is lining up a shock move for Newcastle’s mercurial midfielder Jonjo Shelvey, according to a Mirror exclusive. Moyes is believed to be desperate to strengthen his midfield in the January transfer window as he looks to boost the Hammers’ chances of survival this season. With the long-term future of Mark Noble in mind, Jonjo Shelvey is one key name that features highly on Moyes’ list. Since signing for the Magpies in 2016 from Swansea, Shelvey has shown that he has untapped potential, but he has yet to hit full stride for Rafa Benitez’ side. The former Liverpool and Swansea midfielder has already been sent off twice this season, and is now seen by a large section of the North East club’s fan base as a liability, due to his persistent temperament issues. When not suspended, Shelvey has struggled to maintain a regular place in Newcastle’s starting line-up, and with Amanda Staveley’s takeover still not having gone through for the club just yet, the Magpies could be tempted to sell Shelvey in order to raise funds for transfers. Newcastle would presumably want to make back much of the £12million that they paid for him if he is to leave Tyneside in January.

Newcastle were left to settle for a point that will likely increase the Spanish manager's exasperation at a lack of transfer activity and delays in completing a long-expected takeover.

Joselu came off the bench to earn Newcastle United a 1-1 draw in a crucial Premier League relegation battle with bottom club Swansea City at St James' Park.

Carlos Carvalhal has made a decent start to life with the Welsh club since taking over late last month and, despite his side having been on the backfoot for much of Saturday's contest, he appeared on course for a second win in three league games.

Jordan Ayew's header on the hour gave Swansea a surprise lead, punishing Newcastle for not capitalising on a host of opportunities to break the deadlock.

The Spaniard controversially rested many of his bigger names for Manchester City's visit to St James' Park on Wednesday evening.He later denied doing so with one eye on the Seagulls' visit to Tyneside but had hoped they would return with all guns blazing for a must-win clash with last season's promotion rivals.

However, Swansea's advantage proved all too brief as Joselu, brought on for the profligate Dwight Gayle, levelled matters with a clever finish.

Rafael Benitez's men finished a largely entertaining encounter the stronger of the two sides but could not complete the turnaround.

Newcastle were left to settle for a point that will likely increase the Spanish manager's exasperation at a lack of transfer activity and delays in completing a long-expected takeover.

His side are just three points clear of the bottom three while Swansea stay at the foot of the table, four points adrift of safety, and now have the daunting proposition of home fixtures with Liverpool and Arsenal to come.

Newcastle dominated the early exchanges as Swansea struggled to keep hold of the ball, Gayle testing Lukasz Fabianski in the fourth minute with a header that the Pole comfortably saved.

Gayle should have done much better when he headed well wide after good work down the left from Perez, who could find neither power nor direction with an effort from the right of the box after Swansea again surrendered possession.

Paul Dummett lashed over from a Christian Atsu pull-back but the best chance of the half fell to Perez, who burst through on goal after latching on to Matt Ritchie's ball over the top, but was denied by Fabianski as he tried to sneak an effort underneath the goalkeeper's legs.

Former Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey curled well over with a free-kick from the edge of the area, the visitors perhaps feeling justice had been done after Christian Atsu was contentiously deemed to have been fouled.

Swansea will then have felt aggrieved not to have been awarded a penalty as a rare foray forward saw Mohamed Diame appear to block a Mike van der Hoorn effort with his arm.

But the visitors were grateful to see the assistant referee Sian Massey correctly raise her flag for offside after Gayle nodded in at the other end.

Gayle wastefully dragged wide four minutes into the second half and Newcastle finally paid the price despite the best efforts of Karl Darlow.

Darlow produced heroics to keep out Ayew's first point-blank header with a fine reaction save but the Ghana forward was there to convert on the rebound.

Swansea's lead lasted just eight minutes, however, as Shelvey unlocked the visitors' defence with a wonderful ball over the top for Perez, whose fortuitously deflected cross fell into the path of Gayle's replacement Joselu to steer back across goal and beyond Fabianski.

Newcastle pressed for a winner without creating many chances to find to it, and Swansea would have stolen the points had Wilfried Bony not seen a goal-bound effort cleared with Darlow stranded, the draw making it just one defeat in four in all competitions for Carvalhal, a run that will provide little solace for the Portuguese given the team's predicament.

Newcastle will need to break transfer record for Jorgensen .
Newcastle will have to offer around £22million if they want to sign Feyenoord striker Nicolai Jorgensen this month, according to De Telegraaf. The Magpies are in the market for a new forward this month, with Rafa Benitez keen to strengthen up front ahead of a tough final few months of the season. Both Dwight Gayle and Joselu have failed to find the net consistently for the club this season, and with the relegation zone looming, more firepower is essential if the Magpies wish to retain their Premier League status. Recent speculation has linked the North-East club to the Denmark international striker, with De Telegraaf claiming that an offer of around £12.3million has already been submitted. If Newcastle do rise to Feyenoord’s demands they will smash their current transfer record. Newcastle’s transfer record is the longest standing in the Premier League, when the club paid £16.8million for Michael Owen from Real Madrid in 2005. The report also claims that Newcastle would be willing to offer Jorgensen a weekly wage of around £40,000, which would double his current wage with the Dutch club. Jorgensen, 27, has starred for Feyenoord since his 2016 move from Copenhagen, scoring 21 goals in 32 league games last season to help the Rotterdam club win the Eredivisie title. This term, the Danish international has hit nine goals in 18 games, including eight in his last 10, and Benitez will be hoping to push through this major deal in the final days of the January transfer window.
