Ben Arfa-Nice contract decision to be made by LFP today

The Legal Affairs Committee of the LFP (literally Professional Football League) will meet this afternoon to decide whether or not to block Hatem Ben Arfa’s move to Nice. 

Despite a FIFA ruling declaring that Ben Arfa’s transfer to Nice is illegal, the Ligue 1 club has said it will only accept a ruling from the body of Ligue 1. 

The situation is unclear because if the LFP rules that the player is eligible, it is not certain that they have the authority to overrule the FIFA ruling or not.
