Newcastle fans on Twitter desperate for Shelvey stay in summer

This summer promises to be a huge one for the Magpies. Newcastle United could find themselves at a crossroads and a number of key figures at the club could leave. The Geordies are all desperate for Rafa Benitez to stay, however, the future of their midfield is up in the air as The Chronicle claim that Jonjo Shelvey could be on his way out.

The issues at Newcastle United run deep. Mike Ashley is the root cause of them, yet as he looks to be staying on Benitez and co will have to just do what they can. That could be tough, though, considering that three of the club’s five central-midfielders could all be on their way out. Mo Diame has just months left on his contract, Isaac Hayden has wanted out for a long time and now these Shelvey rumours have emerged.

Losing the first two of the three players mentioned is almost a certainty. Diame has been a bit part player this season whilst despite Hayden’s recent awesome form, he sure looks to be leaving. However, Shelvey simply has to stay, doesn’t he? If he was to leave that would leave Benitez with just Sean Longstaff, Sung-Yeung Ki and a lot of summer spending needing to be done, which is why the Geordies are adamant that they want to see Shelvey ignore the speculation and stay at St James Park.

The Magpies all seem to agree that Shelvey shouldn’t be let go, and it’s not hard to see why given his graft and ability to unlock a defence from a deeper midfield base.
