Waddle backing Newcastle bid for Lille fullback Debuchy

Newcastle United legend Chris Waddle has backed their bid for Lille fullback Mathieu Debuchy.

Debuchy's long, drawn-out transfer saga is still rumbling on but Waddle feels he will be a good signing for Newcastle.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "I can see why they want Debuchy. He's a very talented player and is good up and down the wing.

"We saw that in the Euros for France. He was one of the best players.

"He'd be a good acquisition."
