HATEM Ben Arfa and Davide Santon are out of Newcastle United’s visit to the KC Stadium.

The pair have “knocks” and won’t be involved against Hull City on Saturday.

However, Sylvain Marveaux - who didn’t make the bench for last weekend’s 1-0 win over Aston Villa - is available for selection.

“Sylvain’s fit, but we will have to wait and see (if he is involved),” said Pardew today.

“But Hatem and Davide have both got knocks at the moment.”
