FA take no action over Shelvey 'headbutt'

Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey will face no action from the Football Association after appearing to motion to headbutt Newcastle defender Mathieu Debuchy.

The incident occurred shortly before Shelvey scored the home side's third goal in their 3-0 win over the Magpies at the Liberty Stadium.

Speaking following Wednesday's game, when asked if he had headbutted Debuchy, Shelvey told BT Sport:

That's what you think. Nowadays you can't do anything.

I was trying to move to get out of the way. That's life at the end of the day.
