Mathieu Debuchy: Set for Newcastle move in January

The France international right-back is set to join the Magpies when the transfer window re-opens next week, subject to him passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.

The 27-year-old has been a long-term target for Newcastle, who tried and failed to sign him last summer.

Real Madrid and Inter Milan were also keen on Debuchy earlier this year - but now he is set to become the latest French recruit for manager Alan Pardew.

Newcastle's Yohan Cabaye, who also arrived from Lille, is close-friends with Debuchy and is believed to have been a major factor in persuading him to move to Tyneside.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
