Nice get English FA backing over Hatem Ben Arfa FIFA case

Hatem Ben Arfa has been forced to wait until he is cleared to play.

Nice have shared a new Football Association statement supporting their case to be allowed to register recent signing Hatem Ben Arfa.

Ben Arfa, 27, capped 13 times by France, is yet to feature for his new side due to article 5.3 of FIFA's transfer regulations, which prevents players representing three clubs in the same season.

The Frenchman spent time on loan at Hull this season and also appeared for Newcastle's under-21 team, a match FIFA indicated last week "must be considered as official" and...

Frank de Boer open to Newcastle manager job, Tim Sherwood not keen

Eljero Elia scored twice to fire Southampton back into third place in the Barclays Premier League with a hard-fought victory at Newcastle.
Frank de Boer has enjoyed success with Ajax.

Ajax coach Frank de Boer has said he is interested in the Newcastle job, but Tim Sherwood has ruled himself out of the running for the vacant post.

Newcastle are seeking a new permanent manager after Alan Pardew's departure to Crystal Palace this month, with John Carver currently in caretaker charge.

De Boer has impressed while in charge of Ajax, leading them to four consecutive Eredivisie titles, although his side are currently second in the table, four points behind PSV Eindhoven.

Alan Pardew denies dismissing FA Cup while at Newcastle

Alan Pardew has a reputation for taking cup ties lightly, but he says that has never been the case.

Alan Pardew insists he did not dismiss the FA Cup during his time in charge at Newcastle -- despite a dismal record in the competition throughout his tenure at St James' Park.

The 53-year-old takes his Crystal Palace side to another former employer as the Eagles face a tough fourth-round tie at Southampton on Saturday, having already matched his win record at Newcastle following victory over Dover in his first game in charge.

With cup humiliation coming with defeat at Stevenage in 2010 and Brighton...

Newcastle United receive 'about 80 applications' for head coach role

Lee Charnley and Mike Ashley need to identify a long-term replacement for Alan Pardew at Newcastle.

Newcastle United managing director Lee Charnley has said the club has received around 80 applications as they seek to identify a replacement for Alan Pardew.

Charnley told the Evening Chronicle that the club will try to establish the "really, really credible individuals" this week and then decide whether to make an appointment now or in the end of the season, but he insisted any delay is "absolutely not" designed as a ploy to avoid investing in the squad in January.

John Carver will be patient with Siem de Jong's recovery for Newcastle

Eljero Elia scored twice to fire Southampton back into third place in the Barclays Premier League with a hard-fought victory at Newcastle.

Caretaker Newcastle boss John Carver will not rush Siem de Jong as he attempts to revive the club's season.

The Magpies have had to do without the 25-year-old Holland international's invention for the last four and a half months after he tore a thigh muscle just three games into his career on Tyneside following a 6 million pound summer move from Ajax.

While he could desperately do with the services of a man who former boss Alan Pardew believed would link midfield with attack this season, Carver will...
