Benitez responds to Shelvey for Hammers reports

ShelvRafa Benitez insists that Jonjo Shelvey will not be sold to West Ham unless a replacement is found!

The Hammers are reportedly admirers of the player and  lining up a bid for the player but relegation threatened Benitez has spoken out about a possible deal.

It’s not the first time the Irons have been linked with Romford-born Shelvey who counts Charlton, Liverpool and Swansea among his former clubs.

And as the speculation grew that he is the midfielder Moyes is determined to get in a bid to spark that area of the pitch, Benitez found himself questioned on whether a deal would be done.

And the Spaniard refused to rule out the move but insists a replacement must be found for the 25 year old.

He said: “If we don’t bring in players, it will be very difficult to lose players.

“Even if they are not happy, they still have to keep working and try to give them best for this team.”

  1. This guy is quite a versatile force through midfield, and takes no prisoners!

  2. If Mike Ashley is selling the club what Benitez wants is an irrelevance he may asset strip the place to get as much money as he can.

  3. I like Shelvey & £12m is a lot better. Montella doesn’t want to sell Nzonzi.
    But eventually Moyes is going to have to look outside PL bc this & prices will stop us from getting good players.
    When they will being in replacements like Mohamad Elynoussoui who Newcastle are now linked with & what a hood signing he would be for us at £10-£12m huge creator 23yo w pace.

  4. Straight swap for Carroll please

  5. Not this one. Immature, has a very short fuse. Saw him get sent off more than once for that.
