Sylvain Marveaux and Gabriel Obertan have reportedly been told their services are no longer required by Newcastle United.

Both players were out of contract in the summer but the Newcastle Chronicle claims that manager Rafael Benitez has released them early.

Marveaux has spent five years at the club but has not actually played for Newcastle since March 2014, when he made the last of 56 appearances; he spent last season back in France on loan at Guingamp.

Former Manchester United winger Obertan has at least featured this season, starting the first three Premier League games of this disastrous campaign before being sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Obertan made 76 appearances for the Magpies in five years and scored three goals.

They shall not be missed.
