Shelvey Joins Swansea

Jonjo Shelvey has signed for Swansea City from Liverpool for a fee of £5m, which also includes a number of potential add-ons, and says he is looking forward to starting a new chapter in his life in Wales.

After completing the move, Shelvey wrote on Twitter: "Just wanna say thank you to every one of the Liverpool fans for their support! They were first class. And will be truly missed.

"Will miss the city very much. And the club! Owe a lot to everyone there! Thank you. Time to start a new chapter in life in Wales. Thank you."

Shelvey joins Swansea from Liverpool where he signed for £1.7m in May 2010 and made 69 appearances in that time, and scored seven goals.

He was deemed surplus to requirements at Anfield for the upcoming season, but he was warmly welcomed by Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins who spoke of the need to increase the quota of homegrown players at the Liberty Stadium.

"We have got to make sure that the make-up of our squad is right," said Jenkins.

"And obviously part of that is making sure that we have so many British players in there. We have got to do that - there is no choice because they are the rules."
