Welcome to second in my small series of ‘blogs looking at Newcastle United’s new signings in the latest transfer window. In this episode, I will be looking at free Rennes signing and French Under 21 international, Sylvain Marveaux.

Like the previous subject in this series, Yohan Cabaye, Marveaux is another very versatile little Frenchman with silky skills on the ball. He is just over 5’7″, has a very good turn of speed, and can play in a variety of midfield places with aplomb, though he has been mostly employed as a left sided or central attacking midfielder.

Newcastle United sign Sylvain Marveaux

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…)
