Tony Pulis has confirmed that he has not inquired about Arsenal’s Mathieu Debuchy, nor have we contacted him.
West Brom have been linked with a transfer for the wantaway right-back for a while now, with numerous sources claiming it would just be a loan move.
Debuchy has been getting itchy feet since being benched for 20-year-old Hector Bellerin. After returning from injury, the Frenchman just didn’t have the speed or quality we needed and although Bellerin hasn’t been at the top of his game in recent weeks, he’s still the better of the two.
However, despite Debuchy clearly wanting a move away from north London in order to get regular playing time, Pulis has shot down the rumours that he could be on his way to the Hawthorns.

Whether Pulis is bluffing or not, only time will tell but luckily for Mathieu there are several other clubs, including Roma and Lyon, who are also interested.
