Departing Newcastle winger Ben Arfa set for Nice

Hatem Ben Arfa is poised to sign with French club Nice.

Reports in France suggest the winger has had his contract with Newcastle United terminated and will undergo a medical next week.

27-year old Ben Arfa recently had a season-long loan spell with Hull City prematurely ended and was set to return to St James' Park but it appears as though he has played his final game for the Magpies and will continue his career in his homeland with the Riviera outfit.

Former Lyon ace Ben Arfa joined Newcastle from Marseille in 2010 and scored 14 goals in 86 appearances during his time with the Toon.
