Debuchy moves to London after one and a half seasons at St. Jame’s Park, penning a long-term deal in a £10million move.

And Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is extremely happy with his latest signing.

“He is a quality defender who has good Premier League experience and I’m confident he will fit in very well with us,” he said.

“He has shown he can perform at the highest level with his club sides and also for France.”

The 28-year-old was France’s first choice right-back during the World Cup in Brazil, putting in a run of solid and impressive displays.

“I’m very proud to be joining a great club like Arsenal and to wear its colours, it’s one of the biggest clubs in the whole world,” Debuchy said.

“I’m looking forward to working with Arsene Wenger and to helping the team build on last season’s FA Cup success.

“Playing again in the Champions League is a big excitement for me and I will do my best to help Arsenal compete for trophies.”

Debuchy made 46 appearances for the Magpies, scoring one goal.
