Newcastle boss Pardew insists Debuchy deal can still happen

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew retains hope of signing Lille fullback Mathieu Debuchy.

Pardew completed a deal for Ajax midfielder Vurnon Anita yesterday.

And on Debuchy he added: "I think, like with all transfers this summer, no-one is going to say it's over or done until September 1, when we all either have a deep sigh of relief - which I might do - or we are rubbing our hands together over what has been a great window.

"For us, so far it has been a good one. We haven't lost any of our great players and have brought in three or four, so so far, so good."
