By 5 years ago

LONDON (Reuters) – Newcastle United have signed England midfielder Jonjo Shelvey from Swansea City on a five-and-a-half-year deal, the Premier League clubs said on Tuesday.

The transfer fee was undisclosed but media reports said Newcastle had agreed to pay 12 million pounds ($17.31 million)for the 23-year-old.

“I drove up through the night to be here so it’s been a manic 24 hours but it’s all been worth it to come here and play for this great club,” Shelvey said on the club website (www.nufc.co.uk).
