Mathieu Debuchy – I Still Want To Go To Newcastle


French right back Mathieu Debuchy has been interviewed in The Sun today, and he has made it clear he still wants to move to Newcastle, a club that Joey Barton has said today is one of the most forward-looking club in the Premier League. Yes we know those words from Joey are unexpected – but that’s what he said on his web-site today.

Mathieu Debuchy – still wants Newcastle move – good!

The 27-year-old 12 times capped French International right-back was pursued strongly by Newcastle over the summer, and at times it seemed we had done the deal with Lille, but it wasn’t to be – but Newcastle kept Matthieu informed of what was going on throughout the summer – to their credit.

And of course Mathieu is great friends with Yohan Cabaye – and they were team-mates at Lille for over eight seasons, and Yohan has talked in lyrical terms to his pal about how great the Newcastle clubs is – not to mention our world-famous fan support.

This is what Debuchy said in The Sun:

“I fought for the Newcastle move, but our club president Michel Seydoux did not want me to go so I was left disappointed.” “I was regularly on the phone to Newcastle representatives and there were several offers.

“I’m focused on Lille, but hopefully there will be other opportunities because I want to go to Newcastle.”

Current first choice right back Danny Simpson is ready to talk to other clubs in January, since his contract runs out in the summer, and if a club comes in and pays a nominal fee for him in January, then Newcastle could let him go, and bring in Debuchy for around £6M (maybe a little less) from Lille.

And even f Danny doesn’t move on we expect Newcastle to try to bring Debuchy to the club in January, and Newcastle may already have reached an agreement with Lille on the fee.

The defender has played for the French club for nine seasons, and has played close to 300 times for the French side since making his senior debut in 2003, as an 18 year-old.

We’d love to see Matthieu join Newcastle in January, and since he’s starting to talk about it again, we have to believe Newcastle are interested.

    I hope we sign him just so we NEVER have to read an article linking him to the club again! Personally think we’re more likely to sign a left back than a right! There’s also a chance no one will come in to replace simmo with Tavernier, perch, Ferguson and Jonas all being looked at for a full back position as well as dummet impressing in scotland

    Jesper…You did indeed. However, I’m still pretty sure this is just a re-hash of his interview a few days ago. Maybe he’s suffering from short term memory loss and is giving the same interviews over and over?

    Is he really that much better than Danny Simpson?
    Would rather the £6m go towards a top creative midfielder player so we could release the likes of Gosling, Vuckic and/or Amalfitano who, let’s face it, are never going to be first team regulars.
    Creativity, (apart from Benny), is something we sadly lack at this club. Runners and workers won’t win us anything.
