Bookies SLASH ODDS on Defender signing for Manchester United

Bookmakers have slashed their odds on Arsenal right-back Mathieu Debuchy to join Manchester on deadline day.

Sky Bet have cut the price of a move from 20/1 to 2/1 after a spree of bets started to be placed on the Frenchman to move to Old Trafford.

Midlands side Aston Villa still remain the favourites to sign the 30-year-old at 6/4 but an impasse has believed to have happened regarding the amount of money Villa must pay in order to push a loan move through.

Other clubs being linked with signing Debuchy include Roma, West Ham, Bayer Leverkusen and Newcastle United.

With Euro 2016 just around the corner Debuchy knows he needs regular fulltime football to have any chance of making it into Didier Deschamps France squad, which makes us believe a move is imminent.
