Newcastle midfielder Shelvey: Liverpool undervalued me

Newcastle United midfielder Jonjo Shelvey felt Liverpool undervalued him.

At the age of 21, the midfielder joined Swansea City for £5million after deciding he wanted to move on.

He told the Studs Up podcast, “I wanted to go somewhere and not worry about if you have one bad game you're still going to play, and I'd had that at Charlton.

“When you go to Liverpool, you play a game and someone comes back from injury and they've got a bigger name and they're straight back in the team even if you'd done really well – I wanted to get away from that."

On the transfer away from Anfield, Shelvey said: “I would say I was quite cheap at the time."
