      Jonjo Shelvey (Liverpool -> Swansea)
      Apr 25, 2010 11:36:49 pm
      Reds line-up Shelvey deal
      Liverpool are set to win the race to sign Charlton starlet Jonjo Shelvey, skysports.com understands.

      The 18-year-old midfielder has long been touted as one of the finest young prospects in England.

      He has previously turned down Chelsea's overtures, whilst Tottenham, Arsenal and West Ham are also known to have been keen on securing his services.

      However, skysports.com now understands that Liverpool have indeed won the battle for his services.

      Despite the ongoing uncertainty at Anfield over boss Rafa Benitez and the club's owners, they have managed to seal a deal for Shelvey.

      It is understood that the teenager will travel to Merseyside early next week to undergo a medical before completing a summer switch.

      Shelvey will finish the season with Charlton, who he still hopes to guide back into the Championship.

      Where do you get that from? Our youth system hasn't produced a quality first team regular since a certain Steven Gerrard in the late 90s.

      Brilliant signing, if true. I have only watched him once or twice and have been very impressed by him. Also, i have read a lot of media reports about him and he always seems to recieve high praise. Another sign that this club is moving in the right direction.

      Doubt Pacheco would have many arguments. My point is made for the current crop of players we have been bringing into our youth team and how they will develop under Rodolfo and his team. See above link. Tired of people making the "Our youth policy doesn't work statement" when my arguments are based around how the system has been overhauled this season and how it will affect us in the future. Not how Nemeth, Amoo, Eccleston, Spearing or any of the players already in the Reserves this year will be affected by it

      My point was chances are if a London club come in he'd [ick them to stay down there. Arsenal would be more likely to give him games then we would. Thats all

      Disagree. Think with the new system we have in place we are the better prospect. Will be interesting to see how this one goes. As for the point of youth breaking in to the team.
      Insua, Kelly, Spearing, Pacheco, Eccleston, Ayala, Ngog have all featured for us at some point this year. Ignore it if you want but we are starting to see more youth players come to the first team. It's only a matter of time til the philosophy development mentioned by Rodolfo means they come into the team comfortable in their position and job in the team.

      Insua and N'Gog have featured. We seen Jay twice I think. Eccelstone once Ayala 3 times and Dani about 3/4 times as sub Kelly the same. Hardly evidence our youths are bursting into the 1st team.

      We won the youth cup and the ressie league in the last couple of seasons where are the lads from those teams. On loan or still in the ressies thats where.  

      I do believe 3/5 years from now it will kick in no doubt

      I know they havent been playing extensively.(With the exception of Insua and Ngog)
      My point is that the overhaul is only in its eleventh month and already we have seen massive strides in youth development. We will see more quality youth come in to the first team in the next few seasons. A lot of our Reserves this year were made up of youth graduates stepping up because we put players out on loan to further their development. Hardly a backward step and likely to help all players concerned to develop more.

      I don't pay much attention to what goes in behind the scenes, that is not my domain. I watch the end product, and at present there is no evidence in terms of results to suggest that we have a great youth policy. Of course this new 'overhaul' may change things, but at the moment it is work in progress, and to claim it as being better than Arsenals is far off the mark.

      They have many many kids who are capable of stepping up into the first team whenever injury strikes. We seem only to have faith in Ngog and Insua. Who lets face it, are not setting the world alight.

      Charlton Athletic have confirmed that they are in talks about teenager Jonjo Shelvey's departure.

      Reports have claimed that Liverpool have won the race to sign the Academy graduate, who is closing on 50 appearances for the Addicks.

      It is believed Shelvey will undergo a medical on Merseyside this week, ahead of a move to Anfield in the summer.

      However, League One club Charlton have refused to confirm that the player was in talks with Liverpool and insisted a deal was not yet done.

      Addicks chairman Richard Murray told the South London Press: "There has been some interest shown in the player but we're some way off doing a deal."

      Jonjo's already in the bag apparently, he's 18, but he's a first teamer for Charlton. He won't be playing for our reserves, mind you.
