The hotel where Real Valladolid’s Hatem Ben Arfa was staying has closed, due to COVID-19 and he has moved into a youth team residence close to the club’s stadium, according to Diario AS.
The former France international has been staying in a hotel since he joined Valladolid on a free transfer in January. Ben Arfa will be sharing the facilities with two youth players from Ghana, who were unable to fly home, due to COVID-19. The reason for the former Newcastle player’s move is due to the closure of all hotels across Spain before 26 March.
Ben Arfa has only featured twice in six weeks and played a total of 26 minutes since joining Ronaldo’s team as a free agent in the winter transfer window.
