David Moyes seems to be lining up a shock move for Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey in January as
Shelvey is a key name on the club's transfer list as Moyes believes his passing ability and strength both on and off the ball could greatly benefit his side going forward.
A move could very well be a possibility for the 25-year-old, as he has seemingly lost his guaranteed spot in the starting XI under Rafa Benitez.
Shelvey has been dropped and sent off twice this season and with the clubs takeover still not guaranteed to be completed by January, Benitez may be tempted to shake up his squad.

Although Newcastle will not want to sell to a direct rival, the Hammers are keen to get a deal done, meaning that the Magpies may well get their asking price.
There is still that feeling of unlocked potential and that West Ham will be able to sway the former Charlton man to move back down to London and help them in their bid for survival.
