Jonjo Shelvey


Recommended Posts

Chelsea have joined the race to sign Jonjo Shelvey, skysports.com understands.

The Charlton Athletic midfielder is still only 17, but he featured regularly for The Addicks last season.

A host of clubs have watched the England youth star in action, but it was Tottenham and West Ham who appeared to be leading the chase.

However, it is now believed that Chelsea have entered the chase and made their interest known.

It is understood Chelsea would be more than willing to allow Shelbey to return to The Valley on loan - something which appeals to the relegated Addicks.

Indeed Shelvey could remain at Charlton for a couple of years before linking up with Chelsea.

The Blues are understood to be keen to bolster their squad with young English talent and Shelvey certainly comes into that category.


I personally think this would be a fantastic idea and i hope to see it happen. This would suggest a move in the right direction for young English football and for Chelsea FC

This guy is a real talent. I'm not the biggest fan of the Championship, but from what I saw of it last season and of Charlton, Shelvey impressed me. There's also a lot of talk about how he has been one of the most consistent young players in that particular division, which is also something that suggests this would be a great move. Loaning him back to Charlton for a year or two as well would benefit both clubs.

Chelsea are serious about signing Charlton Athletic winger Jonjo Shelvey.

Addicks management rubbished reports of interest in the teenager midfielder last week.

However, the News of the World says Shelvey is a top target for Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti.
