Shelvey also has his eyes set on the FA Cup tie against Brighton on 19th February and the Carling Cup final against Cardiff at the end of the month.
"I want to try and play in the FA Cup and hopefully be a part of the (Carling Cup) final," he said.
"That would be lovely and something I could tell my grandkids about when I have them in the future!
"I just want to keep pushing on in training every day and try to force my hand. Hopefully I can get a few starts and come off the bench."
