Real Valladolid have this morning announced the signing of free agent Hatem Ben Arfa. 

The 32-year-old has signed a deal with the Primera Division club until the end of the season. He is expected to join up with the rest of the squad on Wednesday. Ben Arfa had been without a club since leaving Ligue 1 side Rennes last summer and will be a welcome addition to the Valladolid attack.
