Newcastle United fan favourite Hatem Ben Arfa has become one of the latest sporting figures to be affected by the worldwide coronavirus pandemic.

In other Newcastle United news, a 28-cap international is open-minded to his future at St. James’ Park.



Reports in Spain by AS Diario claim Ben Arfa’s current side Real Valladolid have been forced to move the Frenchman to its Youth Players Residence after the central government mandated that all hotels must be closed as part of a lockdown in the country.



The player’s residence holds special importance to Pucela, as it homes many of the trophies the Spanish side have claimed over the years, as well as the shirts of all the players who have gone on to make their debuts in the first division after developing in their academy.

Ben Arfa is not believed to have contracted coronavirus, and will now live with two of Valladolid’s youth players in a 2,700 square metre complex, divided over four floors, 23 rooms, a library, pool, conference room and large terraces.

League One side Portsmouth have also confirmed that they have had a fifth player test positive, with all five self-isolating after showing mild or no symptoms of coronavirus.

Spain currently has the world’s second-highest tally of deaths related to coronavirus after 738 more cases were confirmed on Wednesday, taking the total now up to 3,434 – surpassing China’s toll of 3,285 and only trailing Italy’s 6,820.
