Newcastle United fans react on Twitter to Hatem Ben Arfa departure

St James Park

Newcastle United supporters take to social networking site Twitter to have their say on Hatem Ben Arfa’s move to Nice.

Hatem Ben Arfa is set to leave Newcastle United for French club Nice this month.

The 27-year-old winger will undergo a medical with the Ligue 1 outfit on Monday and is then expected to sign a loan deal until the end of the season.

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.
