Debuchy, who is currently living at Yohan Cabaye's house.

Mathieu Debuchy: "Newcastle shouldn't be in situation they are in.

"They're a club that should be in top half of table, we have to win quickly.

"It's true that it's difficult at the minute. The draw did us good, we now have to win on Saturday against Reading.

"I've moved on [from Lille], and I've been quickly adopted here.

"Yo (Cabaye) has helped my integration. He's loved here, that's for sure.

"It's true that it wasn't easy [against Norwich]. I hadn't played for three weeks, so I had to get back into the swing of things. The rhythm is different to Ligue 1, quite frankly. So I had to get used to it.

"There's no down time, it goes at 2000km/h from start to finish. Physically, it's on a different level, too.

"There are things that the referee doesn't whistle, but it's above all in terms of the rhythm of the game that there's the difference."

"Loic Remy on the verge of completing a move from Marseille.

"Loic has had some problems recently, but we know him: he's a great player and goalscorer, I hope it'll do him good to come here, and he'll score goals and get himself back in the French national side.

"It's important I hope to be part of [the national squad]. It's up to me to play well for Newcastle to be in it."
