Hatem Ben Arfa in advanced talks to cancel Newcastle deal

GFFN can confirm that Hatem Ben Arfa’s team met with Newcastle today in an attempt to agree a mutual termination package as the player looks to join a club for free this month. 

Terms for this agreement have not been formalised at the time of writing, but should be tomorrow.

Hatem Ben Arfa is believed to have been won over by the OGC Nice project and it is our understanding that the player has already reached a provisional agreement with Les Aiglons.

Nothing is set in stone yet for the former Marseille man, but the next 24 hours will be decisive.
