Debuchy determined to leave Lille
Mathieu Debuchy has reiterated his desire to quit Lille and seek a new challenge.
"Despite my commitment to Lille - the club is in my heart - I am 100 per cent committed to leaving. I want to leave LOSC," he told L'Equipe. "The coach wants to keep me but I will not change my opinion."
He admits, however, that the situation is complicated by Lille's insistence on bringing in a replacement before they sanction his exit.
"The discussions are not going very well," he said. "For now I am stuck in Lille. LOSC want to find my replacement before I am released.
"Ten, 15 players have been suggested to them but still nothing happens. There must be a little goodwill. It disappoints me and bothers me."
