Newcastle make fresh Debuchy approach

2 August 2012 15:01

Newcastle United have reignited their interest in Lille defender Mathieu Debuchy as they look to finally conclude the transfer.

Alan Pardew's side have chased the right-back since the end of the 2011-12 English Premier League season but have been unable to agree a fee with the Ligue 1 club.

And after Debuchy impressed for France at Euro 2012, his value has risen, with Lille holding out for a fee in the region of 6.3 million pounds from Newcastle.

They are reluctant to repeat what happened with Yohan Cabaye's transfer to Newcastle in June last year when Lille only received a reported fee of 4.4 million pounds.

Cabaye went on to star for Newcastle last season, helping them to a fifth-place finish in the English Premier League.

Newcastle's initial bid was rejected but it is understood that the Sports Direct Arena outfit have come back with a new and improved offer.

Debuchy, 27, has played at Lille throughout his nine-year career as a professional and has spoken of his frustration at being left in limbo over the off-season, making it clear he would like to follow Cabaye to Newcastle.
