Midfielder tweets about Anfield exit

New Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey took to Twitter yesterday to reveal his thoughts on moving to Liberty Stadium from former club Liverpool. The attacking midfielder took a small shot at the Reds’ decision-making before clarifying his fondness of and best wishes for his former employers. Shelvey moved to the top eight challengers on close to a £5 million deal in order to obtain more regular playing time.

The 21-year old playmaker was able to make 19 Premier League appearances in the 2012/13 campaign, but only nine of those came off of starts while only contributing one goal for the Reds. The English midfielder was clearly unhappy with the lack of consistent playing time and showed a small amount of displeasure with his former club’s unwillingness to appreciate his hard-work.

Shelvey went on to tweet that he did appreciate Liverpool for giving him the opportunity, but confirmed that his desire for more consistent pitch time was a key motive behind the transfer. To end the Twitter night for the advanced playmaker, he went on to attempt to clear the air in case of any misinterpretations of his prior tweets about his time at Anfield.

The Swans finished ninth in the Premiership table last season but are hoping the former Arsenal academy youngster will be an attacking boost to the club in hopes of breaking into the top tier of Premier League clubs. Shelvey has been one of multiple signings for Swansea already this transfer window, joining the likes of Wilfried Bony, Jordi Amat, Jernade Meade, and others as reinforcements for the new term.
