Crystal Palace are believed to be readying a bid for Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey, with the Welsh club apparently keen to offload the former Charlton man.
Although the Swans directors are still waiting to appoint a permanent successor to their previous manager Garry Monk, a bid for Shelvey will supposedly be welcomed by them, following a turbulent few months in their relationship with him.
Having signed for the club from Liverpool, Shelvey has been one of their best performers in recent seasons, but questions have been raised over his general attitude and work-rate in training, both by the club’s backroom staff and their former boss, Monk.
After years of what had been considered steady progress at The Liberty Stadium, Swansea are now coping with the first prolonged dip in form since making the jump into the Premier League. Hovering dangerously close to the bottom three and with just a handful of goals to their name, the club’s owners are looking for a way out of trouble before putting their faith solely behind a new boss.
Would you like to Shelvey swap South Wales for South London, or should we steer well clear?
