Newcastle winger, Florian Thauvin is all set to return to Marseille for a loan stint, that will see the French midfielder returning to his country, until the end of the season. He had joined Newcastle for Marseille on last summer for a reported fee of 12 million Pounds, and are now on verge of returning after starting only five games for Newcastle United, says skysports.

Things were rosy for the 23-year-old winger when he joined Newcastle United and the Newcastle manager described him as “one of the best young player.” But things did not turn out sweet for the player as he scored only once in 13 appearances for the club, coming in the Capital One League Cup.

Heaping more uncertainty to his playing time, Newcastle signed Andros Townsend from Tottenham on this winter transfer, which leave the young winger no option other than seeking another club to promise himself of much needed playing time.

As reported, the Frenchman has already travelled to his home country to finalise a loan deal with his former team.

Thauvin has been in limelight ever, after winning the 2013 U-20 World Cup with France. He has played for Bastia, Lille and Marseille in France over the span of four years but is yet to receive a call-up for the France National team.
