Newcastle boss Pardew: Fingers crossed Debuchy passes medical

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is excited about the imminent deal for Mathieu Debuchy.

Debuchy would add quality to a defence which has been ripped apart by injuries and has now conceded 13 goals in three games.

After defeat to Everton, Pardew said: "Fingers crossed that he passes the medical, that's probably the key to that because I hear the discussions have gone well on the finance side.

"He's a player that we really needed tonight - he might have made a difference tonight."
