Debuchy is a done deal.

The offer of £6.5 million was accepted by Lille in early May and terms were agreed with Debuchy (or his agents to be more precise) just before the Euros.

The contract (3 years) is signed and the deal will go through after the Euros once Debuchy has passed a medical test.

Newcastle moved quickly after Sagna's injury put Debuchy as first choice French right back and subsequently in the shop window but have kept the deal quiet to not unsettle the player during the Euros.

Interest from Man Utd, Inter Milan and Chelsea is real but has soon wavered once the deal had been revealed to them. {Ed026's Note - Obviously exciting news if it's true. I've not seen anything to indicate a deal has been done and I believe the player has said on numerous occasions he'll decide on his future after the Euro's. Like everything else we'll see what happens in a fortnight or so.

Debuchy's comments were (as often done these days) taken out of context/lost in translation. He actuallly said he will talk about his future after the Euros.

The decision is made.

The coments from Lille (rearding wanting to keep Debuchy) were much the same. They wanted to keep him but the offer met a contract cluase of 8 million Euros and so had no choice in the matter.

I hope this is true, but Henri Bedimo is claiming hes all but secured a move to the premier league with newcastle and liverpool interested, and liverpool with johnson, kelly and flanagan cant see why they would sign him, Although hes 28 2 years over our cap, maybe this show wev moved on from debuchy? Just a thought.

Agree3 Disagree4

Oops, forgot to mention Henri Bedimo is a full back currently playing for french champions Montpellier.

Agree4 Disagree1

I hope to god you're right, but where did you get all this from?

Agree1 Disagree2

Hope this is true but but we dont offer 3 year contracts anymore do we? isnt it always 4-5 years to make sure weve got them tied to contract for a good length of time and means there sell on price after 1-2 years will still be very big depending on performances?

Agree2 Disagree2

Debuchy isn't 28... he's 26.

Agree2 Disagree4

Why have Inter apparently had a bid rejected today if this is a done deal?

Agree1 Disagree2

No, not debuchy Henri bedimo who has apparntely all but joined a club and one of the clubs interested is us full back from Montpellier. Set to make a decision next week

Agree0 Disagree2

They havnt kept the deal that quiet if you know

Agree0 Disagree1

Bedimo is a left back not a Right back so Liverpool could still be interested considering Aurelio has left.. plus he's 29 and there is no way we will pay 5million for a unproven 29 year old

Agree2 Disagree2

If this is true, they'd hardly accept a bid from Inter!!

Agree1 Disagree3

They haven't it was rejected

Agree2 Disagree1

Exactly !!!! If they've rejected Inter, there may be some foundation to Debuchy already having signed for us.

Agree2 Disagree2

If he'd already signed for us Inter wouldnt bother bidding.

Agree0 Disagree3

They would if they wern't aware of our deal.

Agree2 Disagree0

"If he'd already signed for us Inter wouldnt bother bidding."...for gods sake catch up man...

Agree1 Disagree1

Once again ,they made the bid because they are unaware of the deal already made with Newcastle because it's hush hush. {Ed026's Note - Not to be funny but so hush hush that Inter haven't heard about it but you know the ins and outs...?

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed I'm not the original poster but was just putting my two pence worth in lol.I have never claimed to know the ins and outs that's down to the original poster i would guess ,I just tried to make a point ,so give us a break eh. {Ed026's Note - point taken

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks ed xx

Hey Ed, Is Douglas off our radar? {Ed026's Note - There are reports that Newcastle have lost interest in the player and moved onto other targets.

Believable7 Unbelievable1

Thank god for that.

Agree5 Disagree1

Wage demands too high for the toon

Agree5 Disagree0

Douglas, you don't mean douglas maicon, do you?

Agree1 Disagree0

I would've loved to have him, he's a monster

Agree3 Disagree1

Nothing to do with his wages, its all to do with the fact he has about 20 different people representing him and will all want a cut of the deal so we weve pulled out as it will become to expensive and too complicated

Agree2 Disagree0

Ed? Do you know who are current favourites for Matheiu Debuchy? He looks brilliant and is 40x the player Simpson is, Simpson is not good enough, he did 3 or 4 goal line clearences and magically becomes a good RB, well he isn't Santon did 2 or 3 goalline clearences in the last 3 or 4 games and got no praise because unlike Simpson, Santon can actually play football. {Ed026's Note - I only know of Chelsea, Newcastle and Inter's apparent interest in him. He looks the real deal and I'd hope with the Cabaye connection and the fact he's mentioned previously being interested in signing for Newcastle that they can get the deal done. We won't know anything until after the Euro's though.
