Arsenal complete Debuchy deal as Newcastle sign Janmaat as replacement
Arsenal have completed the long-mooted signing of Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle United for a fee of around £10m.
Alan Pardews team have wasted no time in replacing him though, with Hollands World Cup star Daryl Janmaat with the two deals being confirmed by the clubs almost simultaneously.
Debuchy was at St James Park for 18 months, following a move from Lille, where he had spent all of his previous career.
At 28, he is now in his pomp and was a key player in Frances run to the quarter-finals of Brazil 2014.
Janmaat also played a key role at the World Cup, starring as a wing-back as Louis van Gaals Holland finished third.
Only 24, Janmaat has 21 caps for Holland and has spent the last two seasons with Feyenoord.
He signs a six-year-deal after the Tyneside outfit agreed an undisclosed fee.
