Jonjo Shelvey is a young English football player who currently features for the English and European giants Liverpool. He plays as a midfielder and is regarded as one of the most promising young players in England.
Shelvey initially started his youth team career with Arsenal in 2002 and two years later joined West Ham United. He was part of the Hammers’ youth academy until 2007, thereafter which he moved to Charlton Athletic.
He played for Charlton’s first team between 2008 and 2010, scoring seven goals in 42 league matches, earning a name for himself as a very promising young player.
In the summer of 2010 Shelvey signed for Liverpool, with Charlton receiving an initial transfer fee of £1.7 million. He made his debut for the Merseysiders in their League Cup third round defeat to Northampton Town at Anfield on September 22, 2010.
Shelvey signed a long-term contract with Liverpool in July 2012 and was drafted into the Reds first team for the 2012-13 campaign.
