Debuchy Fails To Attend Training – Wants Magpies Move


Mathieu Debuchy has failed to turn up for his first pre-season training session at Lille on Saturday, and it would appear he’s trying to force a move through to Newcastle United, or so says a report in the French Media today.

Mathieu Debuchy – fails to turn up to Lille pre-season training

The news is being reported on the French web-site Voix du Nord and it seems that Mathieu is simply desperate to get on Tyneside as soon as he can.

The word from Lille is that they are willing to let Debuchy leave the club, once a fee has been agreed with Newcastle, but also only when they get a suitable replacement for the French International right-back.

The Lille Director General Frederic Paquet has said this on Voix du Nord today:

“Mathieu has told us of his intention to leave the club.” “We do not intend to put up a fight with the player over his decision.”  “e like him, but as long as we can find a replacement of the same level, we will let him leave.”

Voix du Nordis is  reporting that Debuchy was supposed to train with the Lille squad on Saturday, after having extra time off for his exploits with France in Euro 2012, but  he did not show up.

They are then  putting two and two together and assume it’s an effort by the 26 year-old to force a move through to his preferred next club – Newcastle United – who have a terrific reputation in France.

Only last week the 9 times capped French International had showed some of his frustration with the way his club Lille, the only club he has ever played for, were dragging their feet on the deal.

This is what Mathieu said:

“I will do everything I can to move elsewhere. Players have been suggested to them and still nothing happens. It disappoints me and it bothers me.”

It would seem  that things will heat up this week with the French international, who seems to want to get to Newcastle asap, presumably  so he can join the next tour the club have planned, with games in Portugal this Friday and Saturday.

But the first thing that has to happen is Newcastle have to agree a fee with Lille, which they haven’t  done yet, and don’t forget Italian giants Inter-Milan are also  interested in the player.

And we are always assuming this report is accurate.

    I’m bored now. Let’s just get some faces in please. I even think Pards is getting worried. That’s why Tav has had plenty of game time. I could see him being our right back for the start of the season. I can’t see Carroll coming back either. We need a striker badly. I’m sick of all these articals apart from this one saying we need a striker the replace Ba. We NEED a striker as well a Ba, Cissé and Strolla.

    As much as I can understand Debuchy’s frustration with Lille dragging their heels, they do still pay his wages, Debuchy like many like him are showing a high degree of unprofessionalism, he is a disgrace if he has gone AWOL, I hope this is not the case.

    I think, in honour of the now infamous BBQ post, we should find a bbq ix. So far me and Martoon have come up with patrick berger, and the manager would be Harry steak face redknapp.

    First off I just read a report saying he’s not due back until today and secondly if he has went on strike how does that automatically mean he wants to move to Newcastle? There’s other clubs interested

    Why do people think we desperately need a striker now?

    We have 2 and shola and only play with one up front.

    With Senegal playing the ivory coast they dembas might not even go but if they do we can signing in january if needs be.

    @hoppernufc

    maybe because he has distanced himself from clubs like inter and said he wants to come to newcastle.

    Direct quote from Debuchy

    “”My priority is to join Newcastle, although Inter also enquired about me.

    “I am committed 100 per cent to the fact I want to leave Lille, I want to discover another championship.

    “The coach wants to keep me and I will not change his mind, but I will do everything I can to move elsewhere.””
