United's defeat at Villa Park left another question mark about the lack of quality in the squad . but there is one bright cloud on the horizon . Hatem Ben Arfa is back training with his Newcastle United teammates, and boy do they need this lift. Now recovered from his broken leg, Ben Arfa is back in training once again. Ben Arfa: "It is great to back in Newcastle and back with the lads. "I joined in with the warm-up this morning and managed to do a bit of light training on my own, and it was good to see the rest of the players after such a long time. "I will be continuing to follow my rehabilitation programme now I am back in Newcastle, and would like to thank the fans for their support while I have been out injured. "It has been a difficult period without football, but I am pleased with how my recovery has gone and look forward to pulling on a black and white shirt again and getting back onto the St James' Park pitch."
