Arsenal full-back Mathieu Debuchy is close to securing a loan move back to France with Saint-Etienne.
The 32-year-old has not played in the Premier League this season, his seven appearances having come in the Carabao and EFL Cups and Europa League.
The France international said earlier in January he would be happy to find a new club this month.
“I want to leave, to find a new challenge,” he told RMC Sport. “The fact I’m playing well will give me opportunities.
“We’ll see if there are good opportunities in the transfer window. I’m open.”
