Shelvey staying put at Swansea, insists Monk, as Pardew lines up Palace bid

first_img Jonjo Shelvey Garry Monk insists Swansea have no interest in selling Jonjo Shelvey in January.The midfielder was hit with a violent conduct charge by the Football Association after he appeared to fling back an arm into the face of Emre Can during Swansea’s defeat at Liverpool on Monday.The incident came only days after Shelvey had been blasted for Monk over a lack of discipline and has led to suggestions the Swans boss may now be ready to move the 22-year-old on, with incoming Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew tipped to launch a move when the transfer window reopens.Monk, however, insists the former Charlton youngster, who joined Swansea from Liverpool in a £5million deal in the summer of 2013, is going nowhere in January and has a key role to play at the Liberty Stadium.“It is often the case (to sell) when a manager talks about a player,” Monk said. “But that is absolutely not the case. It was not my intention to give the impression I do not want Jonjo here.“When I talked about him I was talking about the specific instances where he can do better, in relation to the yellow cards he has picked up.“When I talked about laziness I meant the situations he gets into to get bookings, not his overall performances.“Yes, he can do better, but so can all our players. With Jonjo it is a case of me trying to help him, him trying to help himself and pushing on.“He is going to get a lot better and I want that to happen here at Swansea, not anywhere else.” 1last_img read more
