Marveaux was annoyed by suggestions he had failed a medical at Liverpool, with Kop sources confirming to the Evening Chronicle that the deal didn't even get that far.
The 5ft 7in midfield man reflected: "It was a rough day when I signed but I am very, very happy to be here.
"Newcastle came to me six months ago - and they always told me how much they wanted me. I appreciated that.
"When I came here I got a wonderful welcome and everybody here was happy to see me sign here.
"I was in contact with Liverpool too. I was really close to signing for them. The story about the medical is not true, only a rumour.
"What happened was there were some changes in the contract from the first time we had a discussion.
"I decided to come here. It won't be a grudge match when we play Liverpool - it's not revenge or anything.
"If anything I am just looking forward to making my Premier League debut when we play Arsenal."
