Jonjo Shelvey still has 'lumps' in his leg but has vowed to keep training and playing for Newcastle United by having 'painful' shockwave treatment twice a day.

The 27-year-old suffered a thigh injury back in the summer of 2018 and had pain-killing injections to get through games until it just got too much last season.

"I'm quite a laid-back character and on the pitch I'm quite casual with the ball because I've got confidence in my ability," he added.

Shelvey felt his thigh again at Norwich in August and was sent to a surgeon because it was 'so painful'.

Shelvey had to take a step back from training with his team-mates to let the thigh heal - visiting a specialist in Barcelona on a number of occasions with team physio Sean Beech - and spent an extended period of time working in the gym.

"I've still got the lumps in my leg but while it's still fine, I'm going to keep training and keep playing," he said in an interview with the club's programme ahead of scoring a late equaliser in the 2-2 draw against Man City.

The midfielder has now taken to having shockwave therapy in the morning and after training as a last resort, and it seems to be doing the trick.
