Newcastle United winger Florian Thauvin has returned to Marseille on loan until the end of the season.
The 23-year-old arrived on Tyneside from the French club last August, but has headed back to the Stadé Velodrome for the remainder of the 2015/16 campaign.
There is no option for purchase within the deal, so Thauvin will return to Newcastle at the end of the loan.
Thauvin has made 16 appearances for Newcastle to date, five of which were starts, and has scored one goal.
