Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is delighted with the imminent arrival of Lille fullback Mathieu Debuchy.

Debuchy is due at St James' Park tomorrow to complete his £5.5m move. He will be in the squad to face Brighton in the FA Cup third round on Saturday after Danny Simpson broke a toe at Arsenal last weekend.

Pardew said: "A player of his quality will boost everybody. Defensively, we are so short."
