Newcastle United's Mathieu Debuchy has opened the door to a potential move to Paris Saint-Germain, admitting to TF1 that he "would like to go there during my career."

Debuchy, 28, signed a five-and-a-half year deal with Newcastle when he moved from Lille in January 2013.

However, even before seeing his friend and former Newcastle team-mate Yohan Cabaye move to PSG in January, the France international had reportedly been in the sights of the Ligue 1 champions.

"I'm still under contract with Newcastle," Debuchy said. "We'll see after the World Cup, but you never know what life is going to bring. PSG is a huge club. I would like to go there during my career, but we're not at that stage yet."

Debuchy has made 25 league appearances for Alan Pardew's side this season, and has impressed as his side lie ninth in the table after 32 games.

PSG, meanwhile, top Ligue 1 and face Chelsea in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday.
