The France international was targeted by Newcastle United in the summer and was disappointed at the time when a move did not go through.

He has kept his focus on Lille for the past few months but speculation has resurfaced to suggest that Newcastle could go back in for the right-back at the turn of the year.

However, Debuchy is not a fan of the winter transfer market and expects to stay at Lille until at least the end of the season.

"I didn't think about that period so far, but I can't see me leaving a team in the middle of the season," he told reporters.

"I don't like that winter transfer market. However, you never know what can happen in football.

"I prefer to not think about it. I met my officials last summer, and there were things I appreciated and others I did not."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
