Arsenal star FINALLY edges closer to exit after Friday night transfer talks

Arsenal outcast Mathieu Debuchy looks to finally be on his way out of the club after he held further talks with Aston Villa on Friday night, the Daily Mirror reports.

The Frenchman is still keen to make an exit from the club for the remainder of the season as he hopes to get his Euro 2016 hopes back on track, and though he has been linked with Villa for several weeks now, the proposed deal has yet to go through.

Sunderland, Roma, Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen were also keeping tabs on his situation with the view of making a move for the right-back.

However, after further talks on Friday night, it now appears as though Villa have agreed to pay a £1.5million fee to bring him to the West Midlands, as well as agreeing to cover his £60,000-per-week wage packet.

Villa are hoping to use the remaining time in the transfer window to bring in some extra quality to help them build on their five-game unbeaten run and make a challenge for Premier League survival.
