You'd think that £10m is enough to pay for Debuchy, although he already looks a lot more valuable than that.
However, by selling us this talented right back relatively cheaply, it seems that Newcastle have really got in our good books.
Well, that's if you believe the transfer speculation concerning Serge Gnabry and Joel Campbell, both of whom could be heading to the North East to further their footballing educations on loan.
If there is any truth in those stories, let's hope there are clauses inserted in the deals allowing us to bring back both players at short notice, in the event of an injury crisis.
Obviously though, now we've got Shad Fosythe in our backroom staff, the likelihood of that is neglible.
Unless your name's Diaby.
