The Daily Star reported that the 27 year old is refusing to pay a fine imposed by United after he reported back for pre-season training.

The French international was told to pay £1,500 because he tipped the scales more than 1.3kg above his target weight.

However Ben Arfa has appealed against the punishment as his relationship with the club reaches a new low.

He has been training with youngsters at the club’s Academy as Newcastle and will not be in the squad that flies to a tournament in New Zealand today.
