Newcastle set to end French experiment

Newcastle United are ready to offload their French flops this summer. The Daily Star says Hatem Ben Arfa is certain to leave, having fallen out with the Toon management.

And Sylvain Marveaux and Gabriel Obertan, who have tumbled down the pecking order and haven't even been on the bench in recent games despite the Magpies' injury crisis, will also be shipped out.

With top scorer Loic Remy, on loan from Queen's Park Rangers, having offered no encouragement to the club that he wants to prolong his stay at St James' Park, the Gallic presence in the dressing room will be slashed.
