West Ham move for Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey

West Ham are lining up a move for Newcastle United midfielder Jonjo Shelvey.

The Hammers eyed the Newcastle midfielder in January, but boss Rafa Benitez wanted him to stay at St James' Park, says The Sun.

Now the 27-year-old is FIFTH-choice in the Toon central midfield.

It means a £20million move to Shelvey's boyhood club West Ham is back on.

Out-of-favour Shelvey hit the winner for Newcastle's Under-23s against Fulham on Friday night.

Shelvey is behind Sean Longstaff, Isaac Hayden, Mo Diame and Ki Sung-yueng in the pecking order.
