Middlesbrough boss Mowbray rejects Shelvey deal link
Last updated on .From the section Football
Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray has denied interest in Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey despite reports linking the club to a loan deal for the player.
Several sources claimed a deal had been agreed for the 20-year-old prior to Saturday's 2-0 home defeat by Championship play-off rivals Reading.
"I don't know where that has come from," Mowbray told BBC Tees.
"It's definitely not come from me or any of my staff, it's not a done deal, absolutely and definitely not."
Shelvey, who joined Liverpool from Charlton for £1.7m in April 2010, was on loan at Blackpool earlier this season.
He has made 28 appearances for the Merseysiders, the last of which came in the 6-1 FA Cup defeat of Brighton earlier this month.
