The Spaniard has been determined to lift the negativity around the camp after inheriting a group low on morale and team spirit.Both players were out of contract this summer but with little prospect of being involved in the club’s final two games, against Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur, settlements have been reached to allow them to pursue their respective careers elsewhere.

A statement on the club’s website reads “Newcastle United can confirm that Gabriel Obertan and Sylvain Marveaux have left St James’ Park by mutual consent.The contracts of the French pair were due to expire this summer, but with them almost certainly not going to feature in the Magpies’ remaining games of the 2015-16 season, a settlement was agreed earlier this week allowing them to find new clubs.Everyone at Newcastle United wishes Gabriel and Sylvain the very best for the future”.
