Newcastle Set to Sign French Winger Ben Arfa

Newcastle Unite are on the verge of signing French winger Hatem Ben Arfa on a season-long loan deal that would cost the Magpies about 1 million pounds. Manager Chris Hughton was targeting Ben Arfa for most of the summer, hoping that he would bring some creativity and flair to Newcastle's midfield. With Lyon, where Ben Arfa started his career, he scored 11 goals in 87 appearances for the club. Ben Arfa now plays for Marseille, where he has scored 15 times in 91 appearances for the club.
