Newcastle United assistant manager John Carver says new signing Sylvain Marveaux can be the club's new Laurent Robert.

The 25-year-old joined the club at the weekend after making a u-turn on his proposed move to Liverpool.

And Carver says the flying winger can emulate one of the club's iconic wide men.

“He’s a left-sided player, and has been a long-time target of the club going back to last year,” Carver said.


“We’re delighted to get him. He’s got great delivery, and can also play on the right.

“Liverpool were keen on him, but negotiations broke down, and obviously we took him. We’re pleased to get a player who can play on the left or right side.

“We want players who can get fans on the edge of their seats, like Laurent Robert. His deliveries and goals were second to none.

“Hopefully, Sylvain can provide the same sort of assists.”
