Solano says Ben Arfa needs support at Newcastle

Newcastle United legend Nobby Solano feels Hatem Ben Arfa is being held back.

The former Toon star sees the French international as a key player going forward and hopes that Ben Arfa gets his chance in coming weeks.

Solano told the Evening Chronicle: "Hatem Ben Arfa is Newcastle's most creative player and he does make the difference.

"It would have been good to see him on from the start against Everton.

"If Newcastle can start getting him on the ball more and releasing him into that final third, he can really hurt teams."
