Newcastle United have allocated new signings Jonjo Shelvey and Henri Saivet their Newcastle squad numbers.

At Bordeaux, Henri Saivet wore the number 10 shirt.

Whilst Jonjo Shelvey had the number 8 at Swansea.

Currently Vurnon Anita has No.8 and Siem de Jong No.10, so with neither likely to be first team choices come the end of the season, the two new boys may upgrade then.

For the time being, the Newcastle squad numbers selected by the pair from those that were available, have seen Shelvey now wearing No.12, whilst Saivet will sport No.23.

According to Sky Sports today, the No.24 shirt may soon be available, with ‘club sources’ informing them that Cheick Tiote has been put up for sale, to try and rake some money back in this month and remove one of the highest earners from the wage bill.
