Nice v Ajaccio - French Ligue 1 - Allianz Riviera

Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed the signing of the former Newcastle United forward Hatem Ben Arfa on a two-year contract.

The 29-year-old moves to the French champions following the expiration of his deal with Nice, for whom he scored 18 goals last season.

“Signing with Paris Saint-Germain is a very happy and a proud moment,” said Ben Arfa on Friday.

“Paris Saint-Germain has always been a very special team for me, so to wear this jersey at the Parc des Princes is a childhood dream. It is an honour that the club is giving me this opportunity, making this dream come true.

“I will do my utmost to represent my new team to the best of my abilities and to make our supporters proud. Finally, I would like to thank OGC Nice, who helped me get back to enjoying my football again and gave me another chance to show French fans what I am capable of on the pitch.”
