Hull In Talks With Hatem Ben Arfa For Deadline Move
Hatem Ben Arfa is in talks with Hull City according to Sky Sports and other media.
If the deal goes through then it sets up the absorbing possibility of Pardew and Ben Arfa facing each other in the next match at St.James’ Park.
With [intlink id=”46684″ type=”post”]Hatem Ben Arfa\’s lawyer confirming that the player had refused to go to Besiktas in Turkey[/intlink] and with a slightly bizarre story doing the rounds of him possibly being offered the chance of going to Birmingham, it appeared time was running out for Ashley and Pardew to at last get the genius/layabout off their hands.
I can’t imagine that Ben Arfa staying in the Premier League is an ideal compromise for those in charge at Newcastle, though it appears that maybe anything but staying at United is their only driving force.
If this deal does go through then Newcastle will be making the transfer deadline headlines for all the wrong reasons, at least so far as many of the fans are concerned.
