Ben Arfa claims OM move complete

Published Add your comment

Hatem Ben Arfa´s on-off move to Marseille has taken another twist, with the left-winger claiming he has signed a contract with the Mediterranean club and will not be returning to Lyon.

The French champions announced late on Saturday night that Ben Arfa´s transfer had collapsed as OM were unable to provide the financial guarantees required for the move to be completed.

But Ben Arfa has now come out and claimed he is a Marseille player, a statement which will no doubt surprise Les Gones saying: "I have signed for Marseille and I am very happy to have put pen to paper."
