Sunday’s LFC transfer rumours: £10m double exit looming?

Liverpool could be set to part ways with both Jonjo Shelvey and Jay Spearing, according to a report in the Sunday People.


Shelvey and Spearing are both not thought to be part of Brendan Rodgers’ plans for the future and have been told they can leave Anfield for the right price.

Spearing spent the 2012/13 season on-loan at Bolton Wanderers, who are thought to be keen on signing the midfielder on-loan for the next campaign.

21-year-old Shelvey meanwhile has caught the eye of Stoke City, and Liverpool will hope to get up to £7million for the England U21 international.

Alan Nixon writes:

And now Romford boy Shelvey can move on, with a handful of clubs ­looking at him but keen to do a bargain deal. Stoke were keen on Shelvey last season but that was under former boss Tony Pulis – new Britannia gaffer Mark Hughes may have other ideas.

Since signing as a 17-year-old from Charlton Athletic in 2010, Shelvey has made 68 appearances for Liverpool, scoring 7 times.

This Is Anfield writer Ben Twelves recently looked at the pros and cons of selling Shelvey this summer.

Meanwhile a fee of around £3million is being thrown about for the services of Merseyside home-grown Spearing.

The report suggests Hull City could be interested in signing the 24-year-old.

Spearing has made 55 appearances for the Reds since his debut in a Champions League tie with PSV Eindhoven in 2008.

Should Liverpool manage to get £10million from the sale of Shelvey and Spearing, they will be looking at some good business and further cash into the transfer kitty, following the sale of Andy Carroll earlier this week.
