A report in the Daily Mirror, via the Evening Chronicle, states that Jonjo Shelvey is close to signing a new contract at Newcastle, and Matt Ritchie and Isaac Hayden should follow him before the new year.
Shelvey is our top scorer this season and was brilliant on Saturday, and he probably is our most gifted central midfield player, and he seems to love life on Tyneside – especially now that Rafa is gone.
He currently earns around £22,000 per week, so any new contract should see him get a deserved boost in wages – for a player who has become a real fan-favourite and someone I would like to see on Tyneside for many years.
Ritchie is now 30, so it is a surprise he could be signing a new deal – as that seems to be against the club’s age policy for players.
Which of this trio do you want to see get a new deal the most?
