Midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa has joined Paris St Germain from Nice on a two-year contract, the French champions said on Friday. The mercurial play-maker played for Lyon and Olympique Marseille before joining Newcastle United back in 2010.
He spent five years in the Premier League, including a loan spell with Hull in 2014, before moving back to France in January last year.
Paris St Germain is happy to announce the signing of forward Hatem Ben Arfa on a two-year contract, tying him to the club until 30 June 2018,’ read the club’s website.
‘Signing with Paris St Germain is a very happy and a proud moment… I will do my utmost to represent my new team to the best of my abilities and to make our supporters proud,’ Ben Arfa added.
Ben Arfa, 29, made 37 appearances for Nice last season, scoring 17 goals and helping guide the club to a fourth-placed finish in Ligue 1.
Despite his excellent return to form, the midfielder could only make it onto the stand-by list for France’s Euro 2016 side.
