Nice - Six months after his transfer was blocked by French soccer authorities, Hatem Ben Arfa has finally completed his move to Nice.

The former France midfielder joined the Riviera club in January but the French league did not allow him to play because of FIFA's rules stipulating that a player cannot appear for more than two clubs in the same season. At the time, Ben Arfa had already played for English clubs Newcastle and Hull.

Nice said Tuesday that Ben Arfa's move is now "official" without giving any details on his contract.

Ben Arfa, a member of the so-called "Generation 87," a group of promising players born in 1987 that included Karim Benzema and Samir Nasri, failed to live up to expectations after leaving Lyon in 2008.
