Olympique Marseille have blasted Newcastle United over their pursuit of Hatem Ben Arfa.
Newcastle have refused the option of being forced to buy Ben Arfa automatically, something Marseille supremo Jean-Claude Dassier is not happy about.
"I asked Newcastle to add an automatic buy-out clause if they stating in the Premier League," said Dassier.
"They refused. They are trying to take advantage and should not take us for idiots."
