It is now reported in France that PSG are interested in Mathieu Dubuchy as a target in the January window.

Defender Christophe Jallet will now be out injured  for at least two months and the French league leaders want competition for Gregory van der Wiel at right-back.

mathieu debuchyFrench media organisation RMC say their sources have told them that Debuchy is on a shortlist for January and the fact he could play Champions League this season is a major factor.

They further report that  Laurent Blanc is a big fan of the Newcastle full-back and that the PSG manager is considering his options before making a move.

Alternatively, PSG may decide to go down the route of bringing in a loan player as cover, which would then appear to rule out any move for Newcastle’s recent form player.

Mathieu Debuchy has of course been in sparkling form and give or take the odd red card/suspension has arguably been Newcastle’s best player of the season so far. It is funny how the trabsfer speculation always surrounds our better players…
