Newcastle medical chiefs give Ben Arfa injury all-clear

Newcastle United medical chiefs have declared Hatem Ben Arfa fully fit.

The Sunday Sun says Ben Arfa was "signed off" by physios at the state-of-the-art centre a fortnight ago, finally giving him the green light to relaunch a Newcastle career hit by the horrendous double leg break suffered in October.

Ben Arfa's English-based adviser Simon Stainrod revealed: "Hatem has been signed off the sick list and has been for a couple of weeks.

"He's doing fine - he's on holiday at the moment but he's absolutely desperate to get back in among things.

"He'll be back at Newcastle for the start of pre-season and while nothing is ever certain with anyone, he'll really benefit from a full pre-season."
