Newcastle United are reportedly interested in re-signing France defender Mathieu Debuchy.

The Premier League outfit, who slumped to the bottom of the table following Saturday’s humiliating 6-1 defeat at Manchester City, are considering a move to bring the full-back back to St James’ Park, just 18 months after he left the club for Arsenal.

The 30-year-old, who has 27 international caps to his name, has made just three appearances in all competitions for the Gunners so far this season after finding himself out-of-favour behind the talented youngster Hector Bellerin.

With Debuchy facing the possibility of missing out on France’s 2016 European Championships squad next summer, the former Magpie may be tempted in a move back to Newcastle during the January transfer window in a bid for more first-team opportunities.
