Arsenal transfer news: Wenger set to confirm £10m Debuchy signing from Newcastle United

Arsenal are expected to confirm the signing of France defender Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle on Thursday, and continue to track further new additions.

Following the arrival of Holland full-back Daryl Janmaat from Feyenoord, the Magpies are now happy to finalise the departure of Debuchy, in what is expected to be a £10million deal.

The 28-year-old, who was part of the French World Cup squad which reached the quarter-finals in Brazil, will present ready-made Premier League cover for Bacary Sagna, who earlier this summer left Arsenal to join Manchester City on a free transfer.
