Photos: Mathieu Debuchy steps out for Arsenal training despite Deadline Day transfer talks

Olivier Giroud and Mathieu Debuchy

The Frenchman has been linked with the likes of Sunderland and Bordeaux.

Arsenal trained this morning ahead of their upcoming Premier League tie against Southampton tomorrow night.

The players put aside the distractions of transfer deadline day to go through their paces with one man certainly likely to be thinking about his future.

Mathieu Debuchy is widely anticipated to leave the club today with Sunderland and Bordeaux both keen on signing the former Newcastle United player on loan for the rest of the season.

The Frenchman has fallen behind Hector Bellerin and Calum Chambers in the pecking order and is desperate for first-team football. He is hoping to ensure himself of a place in the French national team for this summer's European Championships so a move away seems reasonable.

So it might have been expected that he did not train today but it seems he did.

He was snapped in his training gear at London Colny and even posed for a picture with his good friend and French compatriot Olivier Giroud - not looking like a player unhappy and set to leave.

But with the window open until 11pm and Arsene Wenger non-committal over the right-back's fiuture he might still be on the move.
