Mathieu Debuchy set for West Brom loan


Mathieu Debuchy is set to leave Arsenal this January with a loan move to West Brom on the verge of completion.

The French international was first linked with the Baggies last week, and we understand that the deal is set to go through as he looks to play regular football ahead of Euro 2016.

The former Newcastle man has, more than once, made clear his unhappiness at falling behind Hector Bellerin in the pecking order, and speaking earlier in the week Arsene Wenger said it was ‘not impossible‘ that he’d allow him to leave.

Debuchy has played only twice in the Premier League this season, and just seven times in all competitions as Bellerin established himself as the first choice.

He’ll join fellow Gunner Serge4 Gnabry at the Hawthorns, although he’ll hope to play more often than the young German who has barely featured at all.

Arsene Wenger will likely use Calum Chambers as back-up for Bellerin when the move is completed.
