thumbnail Hello,

The 26-year-old has been in impressive form for both club and country, but concedes that any move will not be at his discretion despite the Spanish side's apparent interest

Lille's France international fullback Mathieu Debuchy has claimed that Valencia is interested in a summer move for him.

The 26-year-old has been in fine form for both club and country of late, and despite maintaining his focus is on Ligue 1, Debuchy concedes there has been interested from the Mestalla club.

"It is part of my thinking," he told L'Equipe. "I know Valencia are interested in me. But I'm focused on Ligue 1 for now. I want to end my season positively here before thinking about a possible transfer.

"I have to accept that I am under contract and I won't make the choice."

Debuchy would not be the first Lille defender to make the move to Unai Emery's side, after Adil Rami made the move from Stade Lille-Metropole to the Liga outfit last summer.
