Newcastle United winger Hatem Ben Arfa is set for a summer exit and [football] direct news understands that Marseille are keen. It has now become all-but certain that French winger Ben Arfa will be leaving Newcastle United this summer after failing to find sufficient playing time under Alan Pardew. The 27-year-old started the season in superb form but playing time has somewhat decreased since the turn of the year, appearing as a substitute in six of the club’s last six games. Despite not playing regularly in England, Ben Arfa has still maintained the interest of a number of European clubs, including Italian duo Inter and AC Milan. However, [FDN] have understood that developments at Ligue 1 club Marseille that are likely to see Argentine boss Marcelo Bielsa take over as coach, could also see Ben Arfa return to the club. The French international made 91 appearances for Marseille in his three years at the club, scoring 15 goals in the process.
