Reported this morning that Newcastle United had agreed a fee of around £12m for Jonjo Shelvey.

It was Sky Sports who broke the story and said that they expected the player to arrive in Newcastle for his medical today.

Jonjo Shelvey has indeed now arrived at Newcastle and been pictured (see below) by Sky Sports arriving to do his medical.

It was Sky Sports who confirmed the Henri Saivet deal yesterday and once again they appear to be the preferred choice of Newcastle United to release the transfer confirmations. The Mirror apparently relegated to secondary ‘preferred’ media partners.

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.
