Winger Hatem Ben Arfa has joined Real Valladolid on a six-month deal to help them in their relegation battle, the Spanish club said on Tuesday.
The former Newcastle United and Paris St Germain player has been a free agent since leaving French team Stade Rennais last summer.
Ben Arfa, 32, should bring creativity to add to Valladolid's organised defensive set-up.
The side owned by Brazilian great Ronaldo sit 16th in La Liga, five points above the relegation zone after 21 games.
