Hull City completed their deadline day business by bringing Hatem Ben Arfa to the club on loan from Newcastle United, so what do the fans think?
On what was a busy transfer deadline day for Hull City, Hatem Ben Arfa was ultimately named as a new Tigers player after he completed a season-long loan move from Newcastle United.
The deal concluded a fantastic day for Tigers boss Steve Bruce, who also brought in Gaston Ramirez from Southampton along with Abel Hernandez and Mohamed Diame.
Radamel Falcao and Danny Welbeck’s late-night switches may have stolen the headlines, but there is no doubt Hull have used this transfer window brilliantly, adding real creative spark to an already impressive squad.
The only question now is: Can Bruce mould his new signings into a winning side?
Ben Arfa moved from Newcastle United where he had reportedly been banished to the reserves by Magpies boss Alan Pardew.
The Frenchman had previously made 86 appearances for Newcastle, scoring 14 goals and providing 17 assists in that time.
The 27-year-old now has the chance to turn his Premier League career around with a spell at the KC Stadium, but what do Hull’s fans think of the deal?
