Hatem Ben Arfa wants new contract talks next week with Newcastle United.

The Journal says Ben Arfa remains steadfastly committed to Newcastle and has "no interest" in moves to either Monaco or Liverpool, which have been mooted.

Talks over a new five-year contract could even begin as early as next week as Newcastle's new hierarchy begin to put plans for next season into place.

"Hatem doesn't want to go to Monaco or Paris Saint Germain, he wants to play in front of a stadium full of Newcastle fans who feel the same way about him as he does about them," a source close to the player said.
