Hello, everyone, here’s Winter’s Window, Day 12 report.
Is Hatem Ben Arfa’s signing to OGC Nice, legal ? The French international, played for Hull, during the first part of the season, (on loan from his legit club Newcastle), but the game played under Newcastle’s colors with the Under-21 is considered legal and FIFA’s rules are very clear: no player can play for three clubs during the same season! Ben Arfa is gutted, unhappy and wants to abandon his professional career ! Nice’s lawyers are investigating, hoping to find a solution…
