Shelvey toughened up by lower-tier life

Newcastle United midfielder Jonjo Shelvey dreaded for his future toward the start of the last battle and says that a season in the Championship has toughened him up in arrangement for an arrival to the Premier League.

The 25-year-old joined Newcastle United in January 2016 and the club were consigned five months after the fact, with Shelvey conceding that dropping down a level following five back to back years in the best flight was a repulsive ordeal.

"The most recent year has toughened me up. It isn't a decent class to play in. It's not decent to be consigned at any level. It's shocking," Shelvey revealed to British media.

Shelvey missed only four alliance recreations last season as Newcastle completed champions by one point yet his oversight from the squad toward the start of the season made him fear for his future.

"On the off chance that you are not playing at a club in the Championship when you've played for England, you think about whether it will go downhill from that point," Shelvey, who has six universal tops, said.

"I didn't begin the principal amusement in the Championship and I began to question my capacity. It could have gone in any case. In any case, at that point I found the opportunity to play and I haven't thought back."

The previous Liverpool and Swansea player trusts the club earned advancement through sheer diligent work and is trusting they would now be able to substantiate themselves and hold top-flight status.

"It's quite recently great to be back. We demand to go down and now we should be back. We place ourselves in that circumstance, however we're the ones who... ground out wins," Shelvey said.

"Presently we merit an opportunity to indicate what we can do in the Premier League. We have to ensure we remain there."

Newcastle have Tottenham Hotspur in the primary match of the season on August 13.
