Debuchy wants Champions League football

Newcastle United right-back Mathieu Debuchy has admitted that he is missing playing in Europe’s biggest club competition, Sky Sports is reporting, and plans to address his future at the club once his World Cup duty has come to an end.

Debuchy is currently helping guide France chase world glory in Brazil but has hinted that while he has enjoyed life at Newcastle, he could be open to a switch as he aims to play Champions League football once again.

The defender graced the competition with former side Lille as they also claimed the French title back in 2011 but joined the St James’ Park side as part of the huge influx of French talent to head to the north east.

And he has been a consistent performer for the Magpies during turbulent times at the club, drawing glances from the likes of Paris Saint Germain amongst others – and he is willing to consider offers.

The 28-year-old said: “Personally, it’s a great adventure. I have discovered English charm, which is very hard, Newcastle and their extraordinary fans.

“Having said that, I miss European football and the Champions League in particular.”

Debuchy for now is concentrating on France’s attempts to navigate through Group E as they look to make it three wins out of three, and is currently keeping Manchester City new boy Bacary Sagna out of the side with his form.

The defender has made 46 appearances for Newcastle to date, claiming one goal during his time there.
