Newcastle United sign Sylvain Marveaux
Sylvain Marveaux - midfielder
Newcastle United have signed 25 year-old midfielder Sylvain Marveaux on a 5 year contract.

The club has confirmed that it has signed Sylvain Marveaux, who can play anywhere in midfield but is known mainly as a left-sided attacking midfielder.

His entire senior career has been spent at Rennes where he has scored 20 goals and made 16 assists in 118 appearances. He has also scored 4 goals in 11 appearances for the French under 21 side.

So it seems our plan to buy all the world’s midfielders and everyone in France is still on course.

Apparently he has signed a 5-year deal although I can’t find any details of fees paid or suchlike, although allegedly West Ham offered £3m for him last June. (more…)
