Newcastle United signing Mathieu Debuchy hopes to excite his new fans.

He has carved out a reputation for being a right-back who spends almost as much time in the opposition's half as he does in his own.

Debuchy told the Sunday Sun: "I don't like to talk a great deal about myself, but I like to get forward and support the attackers.

"Primarily I am a defender. I will try to do my best in that role for my team"
