Marveaux signs for Magpies

Newcastle United have beaten Liverpool to the signing of French midfielder Sylvain Marveaux.

Sylvain Marveaux Midfielder Sylvain Marveaux, 25, has agreed terms to join Newcastle United on July 1 from Rennes, after agreeing a five-year-deal at St. James' Park.

The former France Under 21 International joined Rennes as a 15-year-old in 2001, making his first team debut in 2006. Since then he has made over 100 appearances for Les Rouges, scoring 16 goals from attacking or left midfield roles.

Manager Alan Pardew said:"It's a great coup to have signed Sylvain, who has received interest from a number of other clubs. He may not be well known to many of our fans but he is a real talent and a player we have been keeping an eye on for some time. It's been a good couple of days for us on the transfer front."

Marveaux is now set to become Newcastle's third signing of the summer, and he is the third French-born player to join following on from Yohan Cabaye and Demba Ba.

Reports had emerged on Friday evening that Marveaux had failed to come through a medical at Liverpool, prompting the move to fall through.

But the left-sided midfielder, who underwent groin surgery in February, is adamant this was not the case, and says he has been fully fit for months.

"Frankly, those rumours aren't anything," he told L'Equipe. "I am perfectly fit, and capable of playing again.

"I resumed individual training sessions at Rennes late last season and I could have played the last match if the club wanted.

"I am a little disgusted to read rumours like that because I know it could affect the rest of my career."

Liverpool edge closer to signing the French winger

Liverpool has been known to have made a pre-contract agreement with the France international midfielder back in January 2011.

Liverpool have moved closer to signing Sylvain Marveaux on a free transfer after the French midfielder underwent a medical on Merseyside.

Sylvain Marveaux The 25-year-old is out of contract following five seasons in the Rennes first team and has been linked with a move to Anfield since January.

Talks took place between Liverpool officials and Marveaux's representatives when Roy Hodgson was manager, although the club's director of football Damien Comolli has overseen the transfer and interest has not waned since Kenny Dalglish took charge.

Marveaux made only 10 appearances for Rennes last season due to a serious groin injury but, providing he passes the medical, the left-sided midfielder is likely to become Liverpool's second capture of the summer following the arrival of Jordan Henderson from Sunderland.
