PHOTO: Arsenal Confirm Mathieu Debuchy Shirt Number After £12m Move
Arsenal wrapped up their second signing of the summer earlier this evening after confirming Mathieu Debuchy has joined the club from Newcastle United.
The 28-year-old has signed a long-term contract and although neither club have announced the exact fee, it’s widely reported to be in the region of £12m.
Debuchy will be a direct replacement for Bacary Sagna following his free transfer move to Manchester City last month and now we’ve confirmed what squad number he’ll be wearing next year.
Thankfully, the French international has been handed the No.2 shirt – formerly worn by Abou Diaby – meaning our first choice full backs will be wearing No.2 and No.3 after Kieran Gibbs made the switch following Sagna’s exit.
