Ben Arfa to be granted Newcastle release

Hatem Ben Arfa is set to be granted a free transfer by Newcastle United.

The Evening Chronicle says Ben Arfa's contract at Newcastle has been "terminated" - according to reports in France.

The playmaker was understood to be scheduled to return to United this week after his loan deal with Hull City was ended early.

But the French media are tipping Ben Arfa to join Nice in Ligue 1.
