Hatem Ben Arfa in advanced talks with new club

7 years ago

Over in France, Canal+ have just reported that Hatem Ben Arfa is in advanced talks to join Nice.

The French club are currently eleventh in Ligue 1 and a move back to France sounds like the best option for the Newcastle midfielder.

Both Alan Pardew and Steve Bruce have made clear he is not in their plans at Newcastle United and Hull City respectively.

The French media giant didn’t make clear whether it would be an initial loan or an immediate permanent deal if Ben Arfa joins Nice.

Though either way that is a small detail with the playmaker’s contract due to end in June at St.James’ Park anyway.

Hatem is already over in France training by himself with a personal trainer, so the quicker he gets sorted with a new club the better.

Recent days saw Alan Pardew claim that Hatem Ben Arfa played the best football of his career at Newcastle United, under his guidance.
