Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are said to be weighing up whether or not to make a move for Newcastle United defender Mathieu Debuchy this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The highly rated France international has only been at St James’ Park since the turn of the year, with the 28-year-old having arrived in the north east from Ligue 1 outfit Lille on a five-and-a-half-year deal for a fee of £5.5 million.

However, it is fair to say that in his first six months at the club, the full back found it hard to adapt to the pace of the game in the Premier League, with Debuchy struggling badly for confidence and form in his 14 appearances for the Magpies in the second half of last season.

And now it appears as though the big-spending Parisians may be about to offer the right back an escape route back to France before the summer transfer window closes for business on Sept 2, although whether Newcastle head coach Alan Pardew would be willing to let the Frenchman leave the club after only having been there since January is another matter entirely.

Equally, were the Ligue 1 giants to make the Geordies an offer they can’t refuse for Debuchy, then that may be a different matter entirely.
