Hatem Ben Arfa leaves Newcastle United's pre-season tour of the USA early after picking up an ankle injury.

Hatem Ben Arfa will be leaving Newcastle United's pre-season tour of the USA early after sustaining an ankle injury.

The winger was stretchered off the pitch during the Magpies' 0-0 draw with Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday night.

A club statement read: "[Ben Arfa] will be leaving the club's US tour tomorrow and the injury will be reassessed over the next 48 hours."

The 24-year-old had only just recovered from a double leg fracture suffered at Manchester City last October, which ruled him out for the majority of the season.

The French international initially moved from Marseille on a season-long loan deal which was made permanent in January.
