Newcastle United midfielder Sylvain Marveaux is attracting plenty of transfer interest.

Marveaux is on the radar of a clutch of clubs from Russia, including Spartak Moscow, and Ligue 1 after dropping down the pecking order at Newcastle United, says The Journal.

Marveaux missed the Manchester City Capital One Cup tie with an injury and has not been involved since the defeat of Leeds back at the end of September - although he is understood to be nearing a return and is touch-and-go for the trip to Tottenham on Sunday.
