Debuchy dismisses PSG, Monaco links

3 July 2013 11:39

Mathieu Debuchy has moved to quell speculation that he will quit Newcastle United and return to France.

The full-back joined the Premier League outfit from Lille in January and reports in his homeland have linked him with a move to big-spending Ligue 1 clubs Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco.

But the France international has insisted that he is happy at St James' Park and has no intention of ending his stay.

"I don't know about the rumours saying I have been contacted by Paris or Monaco," he told The Newcastle Evening Chronicle.

"I feel good in Newcastle. I want to stay in England. I love the Premier League."

The Frenchman made a promising start to his Newcastle career but the club struggled for form towards the end of the 2012-13 season, and he admitted that the English game is different from in his native France.

"It was very tough for us during last season," he continued.

"We had a lot of injuries and we were in trouble trying to find solutions to get out of the relegation zone.

"For me the Premier League was a big discovery. Everything is much harder than it is in France. The game is faster and the teams are better, even the small teams."
