The midfielder believes that the likes of Fernando Torres prevented the striker from reaching his potential at Liverpool but is confident that he will do well in Wales

Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is confident that new acquisition David Ngog can make a big impact at the Liberty Stadium.

Ngog's short-term move to Wales, having signed a contract until the end of the season after leaving Bolton, sees him link up with his former Liverpool team-mate, who expects good things.

Shelvey explained that the forward's future at Anfield was always going to be under threat from "bigger names" but believes that he will flourish at Swansea.

"I worked with him for 18 months at Liverpool so I know what he can do," the midfielder told reporters.

"David had a good record at Liverpool but, with no disrespect to him, there were a lot of far bigger names in front of him at Anfield like Fernando Torres.

"He couldn't get too much of a look-in but, if he gets a chance here, he'll take those chances. At this club, the fans make you feel loved."

Shelvey was on the scoresheet for Swansea on Tuesday as they ended a run of eight Premier League games without a win by beating Fulham 2-0.
