Ben Arfa refutes transfer talk

13 May 2012 15:39

Hatem Ben Arfa has dismissed speculation linking him with a move away from Newcastle by insisting he is happy at St James' Park.

The 25-year-old attacker has played a star role in the Magpies' surprise push for a Champions League place this season and his sparkling form has reportedly attracted the interest of the Premier League's elite.

However, Ben Arfa insists his head has not been turned by the speculation surrounding his future.

"At the moment, I am under contract at Newcastle and I am not thinking about a future elsewhere," he told Telefoot.

Ben Arfa's scintillating displays this term have earned him inclusion in France's provisional squad for Euro 2012 after a two-year absence.

There has been speculation that his return could be an issue for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, as the pair reportedly do not see eye to eye, but Ben Arfa insists this is not the case.

"I have no problem with Karim Benzema and the most important thing is the France team," he said.

"I have returned from a long time out (of the squad). I realised after 20 minutes had been pre-selected (for Euro 2012) and it really moved me."

Ben Arfa, who has eight previous international caps to his name, joined Newcastle from Marseille for a reported fee of 12 million euros.
