Jonjo Shelvey sees his future with Newcastle

Jonjo Shelvey sees his future with Newcastle United.

Shelvey signed a long-term deal earlier this year and after emerging as Newcastle's top scorer this season he has been hailed by team-mates.

He told talkSPORT: "As soon as you do one bad thing you just get this reputation that you are a bit of an idiot.

"People who have played with me know that deep down I am a good person and a good guy.

"I'd do anything for my team-mates.

"I feel like I am in the right mindset.

"I am 28 now and that is when players come into their peak.

"I have felt stronger and fitter in my body.

"It has put me in a better place in terms of mind-set.

"Long may it continue, I can progress and carry on kicking on."
