Hatem Ben Arfa decision delayed once again

A decision by the LFP was expected today on the non-transfer of Hatem Ben Arfa to OGC Nice, but we are now very unlikely to hear anything official or conclusive today.

It is believed that following further discussions, the LFP has asked FIFA to clarify their position again regarding whether or not Hatem Ben Arfa’s Newcastle U21s game counts as an official fixture and thus rules him out of being able to play for Nice this season.

A decision will therefore likely be delayed until Wednesday latest.
