Hatem Ben Arfa could be set for a sensational return to Newcastle, according to reports.
The 30-year-old is currently with Paris Saint-Germain, but is well down the pecking order with the French giants.
And according to TransferMarketWeb, Ben Arfa could be set for a move back to the Premier League with his old club.

Ben Arfa played for Newcastle between 2010 and 2014 before a well-publicised fallout with then-manager Alan Pardew.
While the end of his spell on Tyneside turned sour, he lit up St James’ Park in the early days and if he can recapture that form he could well re-ignite his career.
Ben Arfa, who can play as a winger or attacking midfielder, was loaned out by Newcastle to Hull before he made a permanent move to Nice in January 2015.
He discovered some fine form during his spell there, netting 18 goals in 37 games which prompted his over to PSG.
But Ben Arfa has started just five times for PSG since making his free-transfer move there, and the French giants are believed to be keen to move him on.
The winger has seen his playing time at PSG limited following the big-name arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
PSG told Ben Arfa, 30, he could leave the club in the summer and his lawyer Jean-Jacques Bertrand threatened legal action after accusing the club of “freezing him out”.
He was eventually reinstated with the first team after Bertrand sent a letter to sporting director Antero Henrique.
Bertrand told L’Equipe on Friday: “We demand that the club respects its obligations.
“There is a very clear regression in Hatem’s working conditions here.”
