The Arsenal fans who can regularly be found supping in the Transfer Tavern resigned to the lack of major signings during this time of year, they haven’t been expecting too much in the way of transfer dealings today.
Our landlord however has been alerted to a piece of news that has now been confirmed on the Gunners’ official website, that states right-back Mathieu Debuchy has returned to his native France to sign for Bordeaux.
The 30-year-old has been seeking regular first-team football for some time and with the Euro’s just around the corner this summer, the player has opted for a temporary spell away from the Emirates Stadium.
One Gunners fan is getting among the 2-4-1 cocktails here in the Tavern and thinks a loan move for Debuchy could work in Arsenal’s favour, should they decide to keep him next season.
The move does leave the Gunners somewhat short in defence but it is not likely that boss Arsene Wenger will complete any business during this window.
Arsenal fans… Are you happy with the departure of Debuchy? Will he still have a future at the club?
