There are conflicting stories today on what the status is of Mathieu Debuchy’s transfer to Newcastle, with some reports saying that the French International has flown into Newcastle to have his medical.
Mathieu Debuchy – on his way for Newcastle medical?
There were a number of reports yesterday that agreement had been reached between Newcastle, with both his French club Lille on the transfer fee, and with Mathieu himself on the terms, and it seems that Debuchy sent out a tweet on his Twitter account to say the deal with Newcastle was done:
I can confirm ?#Newcastle?
The Irish Independent newspaper has reported the player has now arrived at Newcastle airport, and is ready to take his medical and complete the deal.
But we wonder if this is true, with the Independent maybe taking the next step and assuming since the deal has supposedly been agreed, the next move is for Mathieu to take his medical at Newcastle, so why not fly him to Newcastle?
There were reports this morning that the Frenchman was still on vacation so take your choice, but we think the odds are still very good that a deal has indeed been agreed, and the next step is for Mathieu to take his medical on Tyneside and sign the contract.
But whether that will be today – we have no idea.
But if that Twitter account is really his – he’s leaked the news that a deal has been agreed, if not yet fully completed.
