Jonjo Shelvey landed in Newcastle earlier today to take his medical and was pictured (see below) by Sky Sports when he arrived.
This followed news that Swansea City and Newcastle United had agreed a fee, reported to be around £12m, for the midfielder.
Now BBC Wales Sport have comfirmed that Jonjo Shelvey has passed his medical and is believed to be due to be presented to the fans before tonight’s match with Manchester United.
BBC Wales Sport breaking the news via their Twitter account:
‘Jonjo Shelvey completes medical at Newcastle ahead of £12m move from Swansea. Expected to be unveiled to fans before game v Man Utd tonight.’
The Henri Saivet deal was of course completed yesterday and so we could have a double unveiling before kick-off at St James Park.
The situation at Swansea had looked increasingly fraught between player and club, with the media in Wales already having suggested deals that the Swans have got lined up with the help of Newcastle’s fee for Jonjo Shelvey.
