Hatem Ben Arfa is set to leave Newcastle United for French club Nice this month.
Ben Arfa has been on the books of Newcastle since 2010, but he has failed to fully convince the Premier League club’s fans.
The France international was loaned out to Hull City in the summer for the season, but it did not go according to plan.
With Ben Arfa’s current contract with Newcastle running out at the end of the season, it looks very likely that he will no longer play for the Magpies.
Following the news, Newcastle fans took to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the matter. Below are the best reactions.
Ben Arfa had agreed a deal to leave #nufc. His career can only go down hill from now, sad to see it happen I think. He'll be a miss here.— Callum (@FutbolCallum) January 3, 2015
Glad Ben Arfa left straight after Pardew. Was sick of seeing people saying he should play again when Pardew goes. #nufc— James Rutherford (@jrutherford11) January 3, 2015
I think all #nufc fans need to put both Pardew and Ben Arfa in the bin. Finished, yesterday's characters, let's move on.— David James Graham (@DavidJG80) January 3, 2015
