Newcastle United star Hatem Ben Arfa believes he will still be playing on Tyneside next season.

The Frenchman's impressive displays caught the eye of Les Bleus coach Laurent Blanc and he was selected for his country's Euro 2012 squad.It had been suggested that a good showing in Poland and Ukraine could see one of Europe's top clubs come knocking for Ben Arfa's services, but he says it would take an extremely convincing offer to tempt him away from St James' Park.Ben Arfa: "If I do not have a really, really serious proposal, I'll stay.

"If a big club comes, but does not propose something interesting - that is to say, the coach really wants me - I'll stay."If I do not feel the confidence of the [interested club's] coach 100%, I will not leave.

"I still have three-year contract. But I know it can go fast."
