Newcastle Ben Arfa returns to full training

Newcastle Ben Arfa returns to full training

Sky Sports reports Newcastle boast a clean bill of health following the return of their long-term absentee Hatem Ben Arfa from injury.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew expressed his delight with Ben Arfa resuming full training. The 25-year-old France international has spent more than two months on the sidelines. Newcastle have been experiencing the injury crisis mid-season, however now it seems their woes are over and they have a full squad fit again.

Pardew said ahead of the Europa League last-32 tie against Metalist Kharkiv: “We are looking well and Hatem Ben Arfa has come back. I am sure our fans are looking forward to hearing that and we had our full squad training which is great.”
