Former Newcastle United forward Gabriel Obertan might return to his home country after ending his contract at Saint James Park.
The France international was booted out alongside Sylvain Marveaux even before the last season ended, as the manager Rafa Benitez was unlikely to give them playing time in the final two games left then. The sack was out of mutual consent.
The club released a statement that read:
“Everyone at Newcastle United wishes Gabriel and Sylvain the very best for the future.”
