HULL City have confirmed the signing of Newcastle United forward Hatem Ben Arfa.

Ben Arfa, 27, has joined on loan for the rest of the season, reports the Tigers’ website.

“Hatem is a superb addition to the squad, and brings a lot of attacking flair,” said Hull manager Steve Bruce.

“We look forward to welcoming him to the club.”

Hull made a last-ditch deadline day move for the winger, and needed a special extension after missing the 11pm deadline.
