Newcastle United are willing to sell French duo Mathieu Debuchy and Hatem Ben Arfa.

The Journal says Debuchy will be sold if the club feel that they could source a replacement of equal ability who offers long-term prospects.

Newcastle will also make Ben Arfa available after a breakdown in his relationship with Toon manager Alan Pardew and the rest of the squad.
