Debuchy wants Arsenal exit

Mathieu Debuchy has stated that he is keen to leave Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Debuchy is ready to leave the Emirates after failing to hold down a starting place in the Gunners’ squad.

The Sun on Sunday has claimed that the defender could be on his way to Aston Villa.

Debuchy told French newspaper L’Equipe: “It’s true that there are clubs looking to sign me and right now I’m assessing my options. Whatever happens, I want to leave, even on loan. I can’t stay at Arsenal.

“Aston Villa are in great difficulty and that’s why I’m taking time before making a decision. They’re a big English club and I’m not ruling out the possibility. I have also talked to Remi Garde over the phone.”
