Newcastle linked with Sochaux bad-boy Boudebouz: I'm not Ben Arfa!

Sochaux attacker Ryad Boudebouz is attracting interest from Newcastle United.

Algerian media sources say Newcastle, Marseille and Lyon are all keen on the 23 year-old, who is upset over comparisons with Toon midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa.

Boudebouz has a reputation of being acting up, as Ben Arfa did while with l'OM, and snapped in Le Buteur: "People who know me and those at Sochaux know who I really am. I feel they're trying to make me into another Hatem Ben Arfa.

"They should be worrying about what I do on the field. People talk s***."
