Hatem Ben Arfa

This gifted performer has been talked about for some time as the rising star of French football and his sublime skills started to rise to the surface in Newcastle’s unexpectedly impressive season in the English Premier League.

His magical goals and creative brilliance were combined with a work ethic that made him a potent weapon for Alan Pardew’s side in recent months, with the Newcastle manager quick to pour praise on his midfield magician.

“Some of the things Hatem can do with the ball are up there with the very best in the game and he fully deserves the international recognition coming his way,” says Pardew of this one-time Lyon and Marseille star. “He is a wonderful talent and all of us at Newcastle appreciate we are fortunate to have him on our team.”
