Debuchy: Arsenal defender Saliba will be welcome back at Saint Etienne

Saint Etienne fullback Mathieu Debuchy says the players will be happy if William Saliba returned in January.

The Arsenal defender is being linked with a loan return to ASSE.

Debuchy told Telefoot: "William, we know his qualities, he was very impressive in Saint-Etienne.

“Unfortunately at Arsenal, his debut did not go the way he wanted. I think of William, but also of Wesley (Fofana) who left us. They were two defenders who did us an incredible good and it was a loss.

"William will be welcome and he will have the advantage of knowing the house."
