Ben Arfa cannot rule out leaving Newcastle

Newcastle United star Hatem Ben Arfa cannot shut the door on a move away.

Ben Arfa insists he is settled on Tyneside but admits he would quit the Toon if the right side came calling.

The France Euro 2012 star said: "If I do not have a really, really serious proposal, I'll stay.

"If a big club comes, but does not propose something interesting - that is to say, the coach really wants me - I'll stay.

"If I do not feel the confidence of the new coach 100 per cent, I will not leave.

"I still have three-year contract. But I know it can go fast."
