Mathieu Debuchy continues to be linked with a move to Newcastle United, with Magpies midfielder Yohan Cabaye urging the Premier League club to sign the defender on Monday.

Debuchy was one of the stars of the France side that reached the quarter-finals at Euro 2012, and Newcastle supporters have voiced their desire to see the 27-year-old seal a move to St James’ Park this summer on Twitter.

Here are some of the Tweets that caught our eye.

James Perch ‏(@hairymonster96) can’t understand the delay: “Debuchy should be signed asap, he said he wants to play for Newcastle, sign him whatever the price! #clearlylovesthetoon”

Nick Williams ‏(@Geordie_Nick) is frustrated by all the mixed reports: “So now they’re saying a fee has been agreed. To go with the fact that terms are already agreed. So… Where is he then eh? #NUFC #Debuchy”

Simon Hallwood ‏(@simonhallwood) is concerned by reports linking Debuchy with Inter Milan: “Great. All morning ‘Debuchy Coming to NUFC’, now Talksport saying he’s off to Milan. Gah! #NUFC #Toon”

Alan NUFC Sharp (‏@NufcSharp) urges Mike Ashley to sort out a deal: “Cabaye trying to get his team mate Debuchy at Newcastle united :)#NUFC #football Up to Mike Ashley to do the business!”

A simple message from Batoura (‏@Batouuuu): “Come Debuchy, come ! #TeamMagpies”

Chelsea supporter Subastian CFC (‏@subasCfc) would prefer the Blues went for Debuchy rather than Marseille’s Cesar Azpilicueta: “If I could pick either of them, I’d choose Debuchy rather than Azpilicueta.”

Ryan Jennings ‏(@ryanjennings13) calls on Alan Pardew to finalise a deal: “Debuchy is desperate to come, Cabaye even said so, what are you waiting for Pardew? Quality full-back… put the extra million in and seal it!”

Evan Ross ‏(@evanross6) is excited at how Newcastle’s squad is shaping up: “Wow if we manage to get Debuchy, Anita and Remy through the door we really will be the real deal #NUFC!”

While Alex Chapman ‏(@_archapman) reckons Debuchy and a new centre-half would seal a six-place finish again: “If we sign Debuchy and a back-up centre-half, I see no reason why we can’t finish in the top six again #nufc!”

Alex Chapman (‏@_archapman) wants the deal done: “I’ll be delighted once we finally get Debuchy over the line #nufc. Hoping #NUFC get some transfer business wrapped up by the end of the week. #InCarrWeTrust #Debuchy #CurtisGood”

And finally, Ginkoh ‏(@Ginkohro) makes a plea for Pardew to forget Andy Carroll and sign Debuchy: “Debuchy wants to come, Pardew wants to sign him, so what’s the problem!? Quality signing! Forget £18m for Carroll ! Sign Debuchy now!!
