Chris Hughton will get Ben Arfa and Tiote by Monday, and will try and get a cheap backup defender incase Steven Taylor leaves (Zayatte from Hull) and a loan striker- This could be Roque Santa Cruz, Jo, Caicedo or Robbie Keane. Good business all in all for the Toon, hopefully enough to secure a 14th/15th place.

A good number of reputable websites are saying HATEM BEN ARFA will fly in to Newcastle on Friday to finalise his move. This afternoon French tabloids and Twitter journos were saying the deal was "back on"

{Editor's Note: What was said by Marseille Cheif Exec today (in Monaco to French TV) is that Ben Arfa is closer to Newcastle than Werder Bremen.}

HATEM Ben Arfa's move to Newcastle United is back on - according to reports in France.

Marseille president Jean-Claude Dassier has claimed that a deal with United has been agreed to loan the French international with an additional clause to make the deal permanent should he play more than 25 matches.

26 Aug 2010 14:54:00
Latest of the HBA situation: Reports in france suggest we have made a bid that is acceptable to Marsaille and that their president now feels it is up to HBA to agree a deal with NUFC. Whether that can be done or not is another question.

Jean Claude Dassier ( Who in fairness as been the puppet master in all these rumours. .) states:

"They propose to exercise the option to purchase if Hatem plays 25 games and pay 5% of FIFA. We will respond. Then, Hatem to agree with them. It must be done with it as quickly as possible with all this history"

Personally I see this one as still 50/50 as even if they do accept an offer I can't see HBA being the easiest man to negotiate a contract with.

These quotes are 100% and taken from a French publication called Provence.
