He may not play for the club anymore, but the former Newcastle United winger has been arrested in conjunction with the HMRC’s investigation into Newcastle United’s tax fraud.

It would appear that secret payments had been made to French players making the switch from France to England. Likely, because of Marveux’s involvement, former winger, Florian Thauvin will also be a serious suspect of the probe.

The French authorities had mentioned the secret payments, which are one of the main focus points of the probe by the HMRC.
