French Exclusive Claims Sylvain Marveaux In Line For Move To Russia

7 years ago

Sylvain Marveaux’s first season at St.James’ Park was almost a total write off due to injury but last season was a strange mix of decent performances mixed with the odd anonymous one, with niggling injuries and seemingly a lack of conviction from Alan Pardew that Marveaux could/should be a first team regular.

The fact that the French midfielder made as many starts in the Cups (1 in League Cup, 9 in Europe) as he did in the League, supports the notion that he sees Marveaux as first reserve at best.

Speaking of which, while the Frenchman made twenty starts altogether last season, he made almost as many from the bench; 16 in all competitions.

Now le10sport in France are claiming the following Exclusive, with the claim that Russian clubs are queuing up to buy the player and hinting that they have further information that they are holding back on this story.


After two seasons at Newcastle, former Rennes player, Sylvain Marveaux, could leave the north of England during the transfer window.

According to our information, several Russian clubs are interested in signing the French midfielder.

According to a Russian source, Marveaux is particularly courted by CSKA Moscow and Spartak Moscow. However, another club are interested who are yet to be revealed.

To be continued…

With strong rumours that if significant money is to be spent this summer then player sales will have to generate much of it, Alan Pardew could well see one part of that equation being the sale of Marveaux if a decent offer is made. While a decent number of fans felt the French midfielder deserved more starts last season, the manager obviously thought otherwise despite the number of injuries across the midfield.

I find it hard to imagine Marveaux ever being first choice and so on that basis he could well be out of the door this summer, regardless of whether the claims of Russian clubs is backed up by reality.
