Yoann Cabaye, Newcastle’s midfield maestro, has confirmed on official Facebook that good friend and fellow French international Matthieu Debuchy has signed a contract for the struggling Premier League side.
Furthermore, on the official LOSC.fr website, LOSC have said that the directors of LOSC, “have agreed” to “Newcastle’s new offer”, which offers further official credence to what Cabaye has said .
Debuchy, one of the more impressive players from France’s European Championship campaign, will add defensive ability ahead of the questionably committed Danny Simpson at right back.
Cabaye will likely welcome the arrival of his former LOSC teammate, with whom he won Ligue 1 in 2011, amidst speculation about his own future on Tyneside. Debuchy’s arrival will hopefully reinvigorate what has been a stuttering Newcastle side so far this season.
