Debuchy Flies In To Newcastle

10 years ago

The long running chase for Mathieu Debuchy appears to be coming to a conclusion with reports that the player flew into Newcastle last night.

Tyneside was alleged to be the attacking full-back’s first choice and then the only question was if the two clubs could agree the fee.

The Irish Independent reported this morning that the player has now arrived in Newcastle to complete the deal.

Understandably, Lille weren’t going to let him go on the cheap after the bargain Newcastle pulled off with Yohan Cabaye, with a rumoured transfer fee of around £7m still looking a bargain to me.

It was feared that Debuchy’s impressive Euros performances could lead to Newcastle losing out in a bidding war but the attraction of linking up again with his old mate Cabaye AND Newcastle’s impressive season last time around look to have swung things.

At the end of last season Alan Pardew made it clear that the Lille full-back was a transfer target and for once it looks a well publicised chase for a target will have a happy conclusion for Newcastle United.
