Hull City boss Steve Bruce has expressed his surprise at being able to land Newcastle midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa on loan until the end of the season.
– Steve Bruce
I've been monitoring Ben Arfa for a couple of weeks and we quietly made it happen.
I didn't think it would be possible to do a loan deal, but the later it got the more beneficial it became. With a bit of patience and luck, we've managed to pull in a really good player.
We all know he is a wonderful talent and although it has gone a little bit sideways for him at Newcastle in the last couple of months, he'll bring that little bit of flair and creativity that every team needs.
