EXCLUSIVE: Florian Thauvin agent admits 'many reasons' why Newcastle didn't work

Florian Thauvin's agent says the French midfielder is back to his best at Olympique Marseille.

After an ill-fated spell with Newcastle United, Thauvin has been able to get his career back on the rails after quitting Tyneside to return to OM.

The attacker's agent, Fabrizio Ferrari, admits there's a "lot of reasons" why Thauvin flopped in England - but hasn't ruled out the 25 year-old playing again in the Premier League in future.

Ferrari told Tribalfootball.com: "Thauvin is playing in his garden again - the Velodrome Stadium is his home.

"Florian is in a great shape and he's proving it every weekend. At Newcastle it didn't work out for him due to a lot of reasons."

Asked about a return to England, Ferrari refused to rule anything out.

"I don't know at the moment," he added, "nobody knows if he will ever go to the Premier League again. At the moment it is too early to say anything with certainty."
