Arsenal gave me a free transfer - Debuchy

Mathieu Debuchy is angry to have missed out on a move away from Arsenal this summer.

Debuchy has revealed his frustration after free transfers to Nice and Brighton collapsed this summer leaving him stranded at Arsenal.

He was furious after only learning in the press that Nice had signed Christophe Jallet without telling him after undergoing a medical.

The former Newcastle defender will be out of contract next summer and he told L'Equipe: “I don't know what will happen because this summer the coach (Arsene Wenger) would have let me leave without a transfer fee.

“Brighton also enquired in the last few days of the transfer window. But that came to nothing."
