Reported Liverpool target Sylvain Marveaux has played his last game for Rennes, according to the club.

The 24-year-old is expected to leave Rennes when his contract expires at the end of the season, with Liverpool and Newcastle reportedly expressing an interest in his signature.

Marveaux will undergo groin surgery on Wednesday, which is expected to rule him out for the remainder of the campaign, and Les Rouges et Noirs' general manager, Pierre Dreossi, is resigned to losing the midfielder forever.

"We will never see Sylvain Marveaux in the jersey of Rennes again," he said, as reported by


Liverpool are expected to reignite their interest in the Frenchman in the summer after making an initial enquiry during January and would appear to be one of the the favourites to strike a deal.

According to, Marveaux's representatives have already entered discussions with a number of potential suitors and the player is thought to be interested in a move to Liverpool.

Should Marveaux make the switch to Anfield, he is likely to provide Liverpool with an exciting attacking option - possessing bags of creative ability as well as an eye for goal.

Liverpool are known to be keen to add more inventive minds to their midfield ranks, which was demonstrated in their ill-fated chase for Blackpool captain Charlie Adam.

However, the Scot could yet join Liverpool in the summer after Blackpool boss, Ian Holloway, claimed it would be 'impossible' to stop him leaving Bloomfield Road.
