The 28-year-old France international was one of the Magpies' top performers last season, but he is being strongly linked with a move away from the club this summer.

His good friend Yohan Cabaye departed St James' Park in January for Paris Saint-Germain. Laurent Blanc's side are one of the clubs linked with Debuchy, along with Roma, who are managed by his former Lille boss Rudi Garcia.

The defender is currently with France's World Cup squad, and he insists he wants to focus on that.

Asked about a possible move, he told a press conference at France's training HQ Clairefontaine: "No, honestly, I did not hear about any talks over a possible transfers to table.

"For my part, I do not feel affected by it.

"I leave it to my agents to manage that and I remain focused on the World Cup."
