Hatem Ben Arfa, who has been linked with a number of high-profile moves since he hit form at Nice, has completed a move to Paris Saint-Germain. 

The deal will see the former Newcastle player sign a contract with the club through to June of 2018.

Having showed flashes of talent all throughout his career without ever really hitting the highs that he was capable of, his scintillating form with Nice, where he scored 17 goals in 32 games, has perhaps finally seen him fulfill the early potential he showed when he broke through at Lyon.

Although he fell out of favour during his time with Newcastle, and eventually moved to Hull where he also flattered to deceive, the move to PSG is still an exciting one for the 29-year-old and fans of the Paris club.

With the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, there's a fairly sizable bit of space back on the wage budget and some star power needed to keep the team atop the Ligue 1 table. 

He will be added to a midfield and front line already packed with talent, but should he nail down a place in the squad, then he may well see himself back in contention for the French national team as they being their qualification campaign for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
