Ex-Newcastle midfielder Ben Arfa: I'll go to North Pole to play

Former Newcastle United midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa is determined to play again this season.

A move to Nice has been blocked after turning out for both Newcastle and Hull City already this term.

"Today is finished with Nice, but maybe not forever. I want to thank everyone here, it's a shame that I cannot continue, but sometimes you have to accept it and move on," said Ben Arfa.

"Today I try to be positive and see what I can do. The solution may be to go abroad.

"If I were to go to Russia? I am ready to go to the North Pole just to play football again. But right now I cannot speculate, I just have to think about it."
