Hatem Ben Arfa: Back in training

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has confirmed that Hatem Ben Arfa is back in full training after more than two months on the sidelines.

The Magpies have struggled with injuries in recent months - but now they have been boosted by the news that they have a full squad fit again.

Pardew was speaking ahead of the second leg of their Europa League last-32 clash with Metalist Kharkiv in Ukraine.

"We are looking well and Hatem Ben Arfa has come back," Pardew told Sky Sports.

"I am sure our fans are looking forward to hearing that and we had our full squad training which is great."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
