Jonjo Shelvey has signed for Swansea City.

Jonjo Shelvey joins Swansea

The former Liverpool player has signed a four year deal with the Swans in a deal of £5M.  Liverpool have also included performance related add ons and a percentage of any further sale in to the deal.

Shelvey joined Liverpool from Charlton Athletic in May 2010 - a club where he had become their youngest ever first team player whilst he was 16.

He made his Liverpool debut during the embarrassing Anfield defeat against Northampton Town that September under Roy Hodgson.  Shelvey did however manage to put away his spot-kick as the reds lost the penalty shoot out.

In the Autumn of 2011 he had a brief loan spell at Blackpool where he was an instant hit - but two months later was recalled to Liverpool after injury concerns hit Steven Gerrard and Lucas Leiva.  These injuries saw him involved in a number of games towards the end of the 2011-12 season.

He scored his first senior goal for LFC against Oldham in the 5-1 FA Cup win over Oldham.

Only last summer he signed an extended deal with the club and helped the reds win away in Europe with two goals against Young Boys.

He leaves Liverpool with the impressive tally for a midfielder of 7 goals in 69 appearances of which he started 31.

We wish the best of luck to Jonjo in his future career.

Jonjo left his thanks to Liverpool's supporters on twitter.
