Agreement Reached On Debuchy Deal – Good For Magpies


Get French Football News is reporting that Arsenal, Newcastle and Mathieu Debuchy have reached agreement on his transfer to Arsenal, and the announcement of the deal is imminent.

Mathieu Debuchy – agreement reached

The deal is said to be for an initial £10M plus bonuses that will amount to 2.5M depending on the number of games Debuchy plays for Arsenal.

That’s £2M more than initial reports which said the deal was for an initial £8M plus £2M in potential bonuses.

And since Mike Ashley wanted £12M for the player,  if Debuchy does well at Arsenal Newcastle will receive £12.5M for a player we paid Lille £5.5M for 18 months ago – so if the news is accurate – that’s a good deal by any measurement.

Mathieu has agreed a four year deal – which is the time he had left on his five and a half year deal at Newcastle.

Newcastle have been linked with a number of top right backs in the last few weeks, with the favorite being Daryl Janmaat of Feyenoord, who is the current Dutch first choice right-back.

Mathieu played 46 times for Newcastle in his 18 months at the club, and was one of Newcastle’s best players last season.

We wish him the best of luck at Arsenal.

    Don’t waste your time mate
    Pretty sure JFA wrote to Ed about our friend in the valleys and pretty sure it was confirmed he was a mutiple account holder
    Him and bladeuser are probably one and the same seeing as there a pair of boring tw@s who do f**k all other than look for confrontation and near on never talk toon, they just talk boll0x

    I will be back on sometime during the game. Pointless being here while there is a looney knocking around.

    Your wasting your time mate. I tried reasoning with him a couple of week ago and tried to put both arguments- for and against still going to the games. Obviously it fell on death ears

    Bladeuser @ 79 The latest info I got was that he had better offers from more ambitious teams, that fitted in with his asperations.

    It’s now a battle between Scunthorpe and Darlington.

    Here’s hoping that the Dutch beat the Argies.
    3 -1 (van Persie 2, Robben 1).
    Then I hope the Dutch beat the Germans. The Hun has to be stopped!

    Same proceedings as with Newcastle transfers, except Redknapp and Fernandez comes in with a playstation and hijack the deal.

    Why do some muppets think I’ve got a mutiple account holder, they said that when mag and guvnor was on here, i only use one and that’s welshgeordie, there’s only one welshgeordie.

    i don’t think you could handle two welshgeordies.

    Prediction for tonight’s game mate. Do you think it will be which Cf comes out on top wins the game. I think it will be a tight affair possibly going penalties

    No to be exact you go “signed anyone yet….see………was talking about me dear me”
    Every day
    It’s actually around the time you pop up that any firm of football related talk stops dead and people start to f**k offski
    It’s not complicated Welshie, someone emailed him cause they thought you were just trolling on more than one account, the IP address gets checked and yup look at that he’s got more than one account….

    Which other ones you’ve made since your last lot were suspended who gives a toss
    This must be the 10th time I’ve said to stick to football and you continue to blurt on about nothing
    Your a proper troll fair play to you for your commitment mind, shame it’s such boring drivel

    Big mistake getting rid of debs, we have now lost our 3 best players in under a year in cabs, remy loan and now debs. That is now 30 million in Ashley’s hip.and we have spent around 8ish on 2 players so mike is still 22 million up before he spends a penny on new players. When will fans realise they are being taken for a ride.

    It’s a bad move if he’s not replaced
    If we get Janmaat Isla or Richards then tbh we’ve done okay
    However we shouldn’t be spending the whole window lining replacements for players they should already be replaced and we should be looking to continue to strengthen but sadly were still trying to get up to speed with getting the replacements in 🙁
    Mind you the Chronicle seems to think were about to go on a 5 player signing spree and have even booked extra seats (seriously how the hell do they know that!) on the flight to New Zealand in anticipation
    Time will tell eh!
