FIFA could block Ben Arfa from turning out for Nice

Former Newcastle United midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa could be prevented from turning out for Nice this season.

Ben Arfa left Newcastle for Nice last week.

FIFA prevent players from turning out for three clubs in one season and RMC says Ben Arfa could be blocked from playing for his new team.

While he featured on-loan for Hull City this term, Ben Arfa also turned out for Newcastle's U21 team in August.

In Ben Arfa's favour is that the English FA have informed the French Federation they do not regard the U21 game as an official fixture.
