Manchester City are being linked with Newcastle United fullback Mathieu Debuchy.

Debuchy only moved to Newcastle in January from Lille, but is attracting interest from City as a potential replacement for Douglas Maicon, now of AS Roma.

Sky Sport 24 says City boss Manuel Pellegrini is a big fan of Debuchy and would welcome his arrival this month.
