The French international has been one of the bright sparks in what has been a tough season for the Magpies and his recent injury setback has been a big blow for Alan Pardew as he attempts to drag Newcastle away from the relegation zone.
Liverpool have made tentative enquiries for the Frenchman, who has two years left on his current deal at St James’ Park, but have been rebuffed in their approach as Newcastle are hopeful of tying down the playmaker to a new four year deal.
PSG have also expressed an interest in Ben Arfa, who has previously made it clear that he would be keen on a future move to the French giants.
One player definitely on the move from St James’ is Sammy Ameobi, who has gone on loan to Middlesbrough for the rest of the season.
