Jonjo Shelvey’s switch to Swansea has netted Charlton a six-figure cash windfall.

The former Charlton star had a sell-on fee inserted into his contract when he switched to Liverpool for £1.7m in 2010.

Shelvey had enjoyed some Premier League success with Liverpool, which has seen him gain international recognition at both U21 and senior level, however without him able to cement a regular spot in the Liverpool starting XI he’s moved on.

He has joined Swansea for £5m, so quite clearly they rate him very highly and I’d not bet against this move seeing him get even better. It’ll certainly give him a better chance of pinning down a regular spot in the England squad.
