Ben Arfa’s message to Newcastle fans

HOLIDAY ... Ben Arfa.
HOLIDAY ... Ben Arfa.

HATEM Ben Arfa has delivered a message to Newcastle United fans from his summer holiday.

The enigmatic Frenchman took to social media to reveal he is looking forward to a ‘big season’ when he gets back.

Whether that is with Newcastle remains to be seen, with Ben Arfa having fallen out with manager Alan Pardew towards the end of the campaign.

The 27-year-old is understood to be one of the players the Magpies are willing to offload during the summer, along with fellow Frenchmen Sylvain Marveaux and Gabriel Obertan.

However, the winger revealed in an explosive interview last month that he was prepared to stay at Newcastle and fight for his place.

Ben Arfa today posted a video on Instagram where he said: “Hi to all my fans. I’m enjoying myself on holiday before the big season.”
