Report: Sylvain Marveaux given chance to resurrect Newcastle career by Steve McClaren

St James Park

Sylvain Marveaux will reportedly have a chance to fight for his Newcastle future.

According to The Chronicle, Newcastle midfielder Sylvain Marveaux will have the chance to resurrect his career under new manager Steve McClaren.

McClaren was appointed Newcastle manager last month, but with pre-season training set to begin, the Magpies have tet to bring in any new signings.

That means that McClaren is left with a squad of players who only narrowly avoided relegation to the Championship on the final day of the Premier League season - certainly cause for concern.

However, those players will be given a clean slate by new manager McClaren, and one player in particular could see a change in fortunes.

Midfielder Marveaux, 29, spent last season on loan at Guingamp having fallen out of favour under previous boss Alan Pardew, playing just 11 games in the 2013-14 season.

Now, Marveaux returns to training with Newcastle, and The Chronicle believe that new manager McClaren is keen to hand the Frenchman a clean slate ahead of the new season.

Something to offer?

Marveaux arrived at Newcastle from Rennes in the summer of 2011, but endured an injury-hit stay at St. James' Park before his loan move back to France.

A left winger with trickery and a decent turn of pace, Marveaux could still have something to offer for Newcastle, especially with McClaren desperate for attacking reinforcements.

It's a long shot, but Marveaux now has a final chance to resurrect his Newcastle career - and it really is now or never for the French wide man.
