Lille fullback Mathieu Debuchy still has hopes of joining Newcastle United.

The Evening Chronicle says Debuchy remains eager to quit Lille, having watched a move to United evaporate despite United believing they had agreed a fee with the 2011 French champions.

Debuchy is still believed to be open to the idea of a move to United in January and linking up with close pal Yohan Cabaye – who has always championed the defender’s capabilities.
