Cabaye key to Newcastle signing Lille fullback Debuchy

Yohan Cabaye is key to Newcastle United landing Lille fullback Mathieu Debuchy.

The Daily Star Sunday says Toon boss Alan Pardew is in a battle with Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Inter Milan and Valencia for Lille right-back Debuchy.

But the defender, has told pals he will only quit the French outfit for Tyneside after getting rave reviews of the Magpies from Cabaye at Euro 2012.

And that has put Pardew in pole position to snap up Debuchy - if he agrees to meet Lille's £7million asking price.
