Newcastle boss Chris Hughton finally got his man on Saturday when France midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa completed a season-long loan move to St James' Park.

The 23-year-old signed on the dotted line after weeks on negotiations between the two clubs to become Hughton's fifth summer capture with a view to making the transfer permanent.

Ben Arfa is a product of the famous academy at Clairefontaine and has eight senior caps for his country.
