Moyes is believed to be desperate to strengthen his midfield in the January transfer window as he looks to boost the Hammers’ chances of survival this season.
Despite Shelvey’s numerous attitude and temperament issues, the former Swansea midfielder finds himself on Moyes’ wish-list for his January rebuild.
Shelvey has been sent off twice already this season, and is no longer considered a guaranteed starter at St James Park. However, his passing ability and aggression in the middle of the park would prove to be valuable for the Hammers.
Shelvey has shown that he has untapped potential throughout his career, and maybe David Moyes could be the man to break through.
The Hammers’ have also looked at Bournemouth’s Harry Arter and Stoke’s Joe Allen as potential long term replacements for Mark Noble.
