Newcastle United considering Debuchy deal

Magpies sold right-back to Arsenal last summer

Newcastle United are considering re-signing Mathieu Debuchy from Arsenal – just a year after selling him to the North London outfit.

The Frenchman left St James’ Park in order to take Bacary Sagna‘s place at the Emirates Stadium following his free-transfer move to Manchester City.

Despite featuring regularly during his debut season, a serious shoulder injury sustained against Stoke City left Debuchy on the sidelines for a few months.

During his time away, youngster Hector Bellerin deputised and impressed Arsene Wenger. The Spaniard then started on a regular basis and game-by-game continued to develop and improve.

After Debuchy recovered, it was still Bellerin being used as the right-back, and so far this season it’s still been the Spaniard getting to nod in the first-team.

Interest in Debuchy

With the European Championships next summer, Debuchy has admitted that he may seek a loan-move away in January in order to play regular first-team football, and according to reports, Newcastle could make a shock offer.

The 31-year-old could be in line for a shock return to the Magpies, but it’s also believed Paris Saint-Germain and AS Monaco are monitoring his situation in North London.

Arsenal paid £12million for Debuchy last summer.
