Newcastle could face a fight to keep hold of Mathieu Debuchy this summer as Roma are keen to land the France full-back.

Roma boss Rudi Garcia worked with the 28-year-old during their time together at Lille, where the pair won a league and cup double in 2011.

And now the manager is seeking a reunion in the Italian capital, where Roma are currently flying in second position in Serie A.

Debuchy has been a regular for Newcastle since arriving at St James' Park in January last year, making 39 Premier League appearances.
