In light of the news that Newcastle and West Ham may be planning a swap deal between Jonjo Shelvey and Andy Carroll, we discussed whether that was a good deal for The Magpies.
Shelvey has been consistently a high performer for Newcastle in recent seasons, and while a move to West Ham would probably be a good move for the player, it would be disastrous for the club. While The Magpies do need a new striker, the injury prone Carroll is a player that a club could simply not trust to stay fit.
With that in mind, we asked who you would prefer at St James’ Park between Shelvey and Carroll, and these were the results:
While it is not an overwhelming majority, there are certainly more fans that would prefer Shelvey at Newcastle over Carroll at 61%. Perhaps the fans have tracked the fitness of their academy product Carroll and believe it is too great a risk.
