St Etienne wrapping up deal for Arsenal fullback Mathieu Debuchy

St Etienne are wrapping up the signing of Arsenal fullback Mathieu Debuchy today.

RMC says terms between the two clubs were agreed on Tuesday. Debuchy has also agreed to the move.

The fullback will join ASSE on-loan to the end of this season.

Debuchy is eager to work with ASSE coach Jean-Louis Gasset, who was France assistant coach when the Gunners defender was part of the Les Bleus squad.

The experienced fullback wants to be playing consistently again to give himself a chance to win a place in Didier Deschamps' France World Cup squad.
