Ben Arfa moves on loan to Hull

Newcastle United winger Hatem Ben Arfa has moved on loan to Hull City, becoming the Tigers’ fourth deadline day signing, the Daily Mail has reported.

Abel Hernandez had already joined the club from Palermo for a club record £10m, while Mohamed Diame arrived for £3.5m from West Ham United and Gaston Ramirez moved to the KC Stadium on loan from Southampton until the end of the season, with owner Assem Allam taking his summer spending beyond £30m.

Ben Arfa has fallen out of favour at Newcastle, whom he joined in 2011 following a successful loan spell the previous season. Despite scoring 14 goals and claiming 17 assists in his 86 appearances for the club, manager Alan Pardew relegated him to the reserves for a ‘lack of professionalism’.

The move could be made permanent at the end of the season because Ben Arfa’s contract at Newcastle is set to run out, but as things stand the Frenchman, as well as Ramirez, are temporary replacements for the injured Robert Snodgrass.

Ramirez, who represented Uruguay at the World Cup, has seen his future at Southampton come under question this summer, and Hull boss Steve Bruce was delighted to seal his signing. He said: ‘Gaston significantly improves our attacking options and I’m delighted to welcome him to the club. He is yet another quality addition as we look to build on what we achieved last season.’
