Newcastle United can confirm that Gabriel Obertan and Sylvain Marveaux have left St. James' Park by mutual consent
By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor
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.
Obertan, aged 27, joined Newcastle from Manchester United in August 2011.
The winger made 77 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals, but has not featured for the first team since last September.
Marveaux, 30, also arrived on Tyneside in the summer of 2011, from French side Rennes.
However, he has spent large periods of his time at the Club sidelined by injury and made just 57 appearances in nearly five years, scoring twice. The midfielder spent the 2014/15 campaign on loan at Guingamp and last played for United in March 2014.
Everyone at Newcastle United wishes Gabriel and Sylvain the very best for the future.
