New Swansea signing, Jonjo Shelvey.

Swansea City have completed a move for Jonjo Shelvey, who joins the club on a four-year deal from Liverpool.

As reported on the BBC Sport website, the midfielder signed for the Swans for an initial fee of £5 million.

While the rest of the football world has been gossiping about the likes of Edinson Cavani, Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney, the Swans have been quietly going about their business in South Wales

Shelvey joins Alejandro Pozuelo (Real Betis), Gregor Zabret (NK Domzale) and Alex Gogic (Olympiakos) as the club’s fourth new signing since the transfer window officially opened on July 1.

Over the next few slides, we will discuss the pros and the cons that shape his game and decide whether he'll be an asset to Michael Laudrup's team.

Super strikes, tough tackles and calling Sir Alex Ferguson "a grass," it’s all in here. Read on for more!
