Marveaux has followed Yohan Cabaye in signing for Toon from Ligue Une.
"It's good for me that there are other French players here, players like Ben Arfa and Cabaye who I know, but it's a very good squad they have too," he told nufc.co.uk.
"I saw the stadium and thought it was magnificent. It must be a fantastic place to play and I can't wait. Of course I have heard all about the massive support at Newcastle and the passion of the fans here.
"The people at the club made me feel so welcome on Friday night when I arrived. They looked after me so well, made me feel part of the club straight away, and I thank them for that."
