Former Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey believes his move to Swansea City will enhance his England chances.

Former Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey believes his move to Swansea City will enhance his England chances.

The midfielder, who signed from Liverpool for £6million last week, does not believe the move will harm any chances of adding to his one cap.

Shelvey said: “If I play every week, I feel I can get in the England squad.

“I’m sure Roy Hodgson’s not bothered who you play for. Look at Ryan Shawcross at Stoke. They’re not a massive club so I don’t think it will affect me coming here.

“It’d be part of Swansea history as they’ve never had a current England international before.”
