Newcastle have made a fresh move in their bid to capture Lille full-back Mathieu Debuchy.

Press Association Sport understands the Magpies have stepped up their protracted pursuit of the 27-year-old defender, having so far not managed to persuade the French club to part with him.

Manager Alan Pardew had made the right-back one of his main targets this summer and will hope the latest offer will trigger a positive response.
