* Appearances (Goals)

Steve Marlet (born 10 January 1974 in Pithiviers, France) is a French footballer who is currently unattached. The forward was capped 23 times and scored six goals for the French national team.

Marlet held the record for Fulham's biggest transfer fee until July 2008, as Fulham paid £11.5 million for the player back in 2001–02, to Olympique Lyonnais. He only managed 11 goals in 54 games, as then-manager Jean Tigana was dismissed during the season. He played just one game in the 2003-04 season for Fulham as well as scoring in that game before he was loaned out to Olympique de Marseille for 18 months, with his sizeable contract still being paid by the English team, before his contract was cancelled. Marlet's terrible performances for Fulham led to chairman Mohammed Al Fayed taking Tigana to court for the overpayment of Marlet. It was suspected that Tigana, who had ties to Olympique Lyonnais, signed Marlet for an exorbitant fee, taking a cut of the fee himself. The charges were quickly dropped.

Marlet joined FC Lorient in August 2006 from VfL Wolfsburg. After being released by Lorient, he went on trial with Ipswich Town and the Chicago Fire.
