Debuchy: I'm not at Newcastle because of Cabaye

Mathieu Debuchy insists he's happy with his move to Newcastle United.

Debuchy denies he only moved to Newcastle in January because of the presence of former Lille teammate Yohan Cabaye.

Asked by L'Equipe if he would have signed had Cabaye not been at the club, the 27-year-old replied: "Yes. I wanted to play in England and Newcastle is a great club."
