Lille players happy for Debuchy over Newcastle move

Lille striker Nolan Roux is happy for Mathieu Debuchy over his imminent move to Newcastle United.

Debuchy is undergoing a Newcastle medical today.

Roux said: "Mathieu is a person that I love. He spent time here, but he had the desire since June to leave and now he has the opportunity to make that happen.

"The club has agreed so I'm happy for him, even if we lose a very good player."
