VIDEO: Newcastle loanee scores European brace, including excellent free-kick

Newcastle Stand

Sylvain Marveaux has bagged two goals for Guingamp in the Europa League.

In June 2011 Newcastle United snapped up Sylvain Marveaux not long after he failed to agree terms with Liverpool.

He was one of many French speaking players to arrive at St James Park over the past few years when he arrived from Rennes - but things never really got going for the player on Tyneside.

Marveaux suffered with serious hip and groin injuries early in his Newcastle career and despite a good second season, he appeared frozen out by Alan Pardew for the 2013-14 campaign.

With that in mind he sought a move from the club this summer, getting it in the form of a loan deal at EA Guingamp.

And he has started to repay some of the faith in him, and perhaps tempted Guingamp into exercising their right to buy him, with a fantastic two goal salvo in the Europa League last night.

Guingamp saw off the challenge of Greek side PAOK Thessaloniki yesterday with the Newcastle loanee scoring both goals in a 2-0 win, including one very special free-kick.

Plenty of Newcastle fans asked for Marveaux to get more game time last season, now we can all see why.
