PLAYER BIO

Former Newcastle United midfielder Marcus joined the club at Under-14 level and has progressed through the ranks, signing his first professional contract as a 17-year-old in October 2016.

He was a regular in the Under-18 side which played in the UEFA Youth League and quickly established himself at Under-23 level.

Marcus’ brother James is currently at Rangers, having started out with Leeds United before moving to Doncaster Rovers.

Just four days after scoring a hat-trick for our U23s in a 4-0 home win over Norwich, Marcus made his first team debut, starting in the side that went on to beat Scunthorpe United 3-0 in a second round Carabao Cup tie at the Riverside on August 22 2017.

In a bid to see him gain more senior experience, the club loaned Marcus to MK Dons in January 2018 for the remainder of the season.
