Lille fullback Debuchy makes clear he wants Newcastle move

Lille fullback Mathieu Debuchy admits he wants a move to Newcastle United.

Debuchy has never hidden his desire to leave the club in recent weeks but Lille had hoped to persuade him to stay for at least another year - although that now looks highly unlikely.

Asked about the prospect of joining Newcastle, he told L'Equipe: "That is my priority, although Inter (Milan) also enquired about me.

"I am committed 100 per cent to the fact I want to leave Lille, I want to discover another championship.

"The coach wants to keep me and I will not change his mind, but I will do everything I can to move elsewhere."
