Pardew Looks To Bring In Cabaye’s Mate To Newcastle Squad

9 years ago

Newcastle United had previously been linked with 26 year old right-back Mathieu Debuchy and it is now looking a knocking bet that he will join his mate Yohan Cabaye this summer.

Alan Pardew has been spotted this season watching Lille and Cabaye has been dropping very heavy hints recently with regard to his good friend and ex-teammate, a player who like Cabaye has spent his entire career at the French club.

Speaking last night in a Radio Newcastle phone-in, Alan Pardew admitted that he wanted to bring in a player who was close to Cabaye.

In addition, when talking about Danny Simpson’s contract position the manager made it very clear that there was every chance that teh right-back could leave th club this summer. Irrespective of that I think it is clear that the position needed strengthening anyway.

Debuchy has recently picked up a few caps for France and an added bonus is that the Lille right-back isn’t shy of getting forward and has scored four goals this season, a definite bonus as Alan Pardew is definitely keen on increasing the goal threat from all over the pitch.
