Lille apparently turned down an improved offer of seven million Euros for the France full-back on Thursday prompting the player to vent his frustrations.

"I called the president and left him a message. I do not understand. One day I said I’m not leaving because I have no replacement,' Debuchy told L'Equipe.

"One day, this is because the supply is insufficient to Newcastle. One day, the coach who is blocking me.

"One day, it was president. I feel that everyone does not have the same speech.

'I’m close to Yohan [Cabaye] and I followed his season. Now I have the chance to play in the best league in the world."
