Marseille have re-signed Newcastle winger Florian Thauvin on a season-long loan with "an obligation" to make the deal permanent.

The 23-year-old joined the Magpies for £12m from the French side last summer.

However, he made just 16 appearances before ending the season back on loan at Marseille.

The former France Under-21 international scored twice in 14 league games for the Stade Velodrome side last season.
