Newcastle One Step Closer To Sealing Debuchy Transfer


Newcastle may be one step closer to getting their current number one transfer target – Mathieu Debuchy – the French International and Lille right back  to Tyneside, and he wants come to Newcastle to join his best friend Yohan Cabaye, who was at Lille with Debuchy for seven years.

Debuchy – French international one step closer to joining Newcastle

But there are two things that his French club  have pointed out they need to do,  before they can let their long-term player leave the club.

The first is to bring in a replacement for the 26 year-old right back, and the second is to agree a fee with Newcastle (or Inter-Milan) for his transfer.

There was news earlier today that it seems that the first one of those conditions may be close to being accomplished.

The news is that Lille have agreed a fee with  Troyes for young right-back Djibril Sidibe, who is only 19, but has played for the French U20 side 7 times, although he has far less experience than the man he will replace.

Troyes have announced today that  Sidibe will be leaving his home town club for Lille,  and this is what the newly promoted club put on their web-site:

“We understand the wishes of Djibril and we would like to give him our best wishes for the rest of his career.”

It’s not clear if terms have been agreed with Lille for Sidibe, but that should not be a problem, and it would appear the first condition for Lille allowing Mathieu Debuchy to leave,  has been met.

Indeed, Lille may also bring in a more experienced defender in 24 year-old Silvio Manuel Pereira from Atletico Madrid, who has played for Portugal 5 times, so Lille will be well stocked for players to fill Debuchy’s place in defense.

Now it  will take Newcastle to increase their initial €5M bid by say a couple of million, to persuade Lille to part with their player, and it’s thought the terms Newcastle will offer will be very acceptable to Debuchy.

Let’s hope the other shoe falls sometime this week, and maybe we can get the lad on Tyneside within the week, but we’ll have to make that offer soon, to keep Inter-Milan at bay.

What do you think?

    Cracked me up :)) did you count them mate 🙂

    Does anyone not think we have a great right back in perch and should be putting the money elsewhere ? We have attacking ability in Santoon, so a more defensive right back like perch would balance out our back 4 ??

    Probably best for Cahill to move on.I always liked him too.

    Stevie Naismith will do a good job for Everton next season.

    I’ll be sad to see Cahill leave the Prem as he was a great player, a true fighter & good lad; always used to be one of the 1st players on my Fantasy Football side. He’s coming to end of his career so one big pay day in the States probably is a good idea for him. Good luck TC.

    Winaldo – you’re about a 5 minute walk from the stadium, the strawberry is a class pub, and is just across the road from the club shop (built into gallowgate end) definitely go there. As for the stadium tour, probably not on the match day (not entirely sure though)

    Maiga DID fail his medical…. He alluded to an injury when he discussed the matter after he signed for WH. You will find it in this very long interviw:-
