Our resident Aston Villa fans haven’t had too much to shout about this season but there have been some raised voices over by the bar after French media outlet L’Equipe reported that Mathieu Debuchy is close to a move to Villa.
The Arsenal right-back is apparently close to completing a loan move which would see him swap the Emirates for Villa Park until the end of the season.
The French defender is looking to gain more regular playing time between now and the European Championships this summer, which will be hosted in his native France.
However, reports indicate that Debuchy rejected the idea of a permanent transfer to the club.
The 30-year old has only managed two Premier League starts this term following the impressive introduction of young star Hector Bellerin.
Our landlord believes that Villa fans will be glad to see that their club are set to add an experienced defender who is desperate to impress to their ranks as they look to avoid relegation.
Villa fans, is Debuchy a good signing for your side? Let us know in the comments below!
