The Newcastle United fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports that one of their high earners wants to stay at the club even if they are relegated at the end of the season.
The Chronicle is reporting that Jonjo Shelvey is determined to remain part of the team if relegation occurs and help the club climb back to the Premier League.
It was revealed yesterday that Shelvey has no wage cut clause in the £80,000 a week contract he is currently on at Newcastle if they are relegated this season.
The struggling Geordie’s are on a horrendous run at present which sees them with just one win from their last ten matches and six points from safety and it looks as though they are set for their second relegation in seven years.
The Newcastle fans in The Tavern admire Shelvey’s commitment but feel that he will be one of many high earners on there way out of the club should they be relegated.
Do Newcastle have to axe these big names if they are relegated? Let us know in the comments below!
