Hatem Ben Arfa’s adviser Michael Ouazine has made some comments about his client’s future.
“Hatem has done everything for Newcastle, every effort has been made to discuss the problem. We are in a situation where there doesn’t seem to be a solution. Hatem will remain professional and is working hard. He prefers a return to Lyon, but it is not economically feasible.”
The player has been shut out of the Newcastle squad and was also fined for being overweight upon his return to pre-season.
