Arsenal's Francis Coquelin 'agrees £10.5m move to Valencia'

Arsenal's Francis Coquelin 'agrees £10.5m move to Valencia'

The French midfielder joined Arsenal in 2008 and came through the system to become a regular for the Gunners, making over 20 appearances in the league in three consecutive seasons.

Francis Coquelin has insisted that he is happy at the career he had at Arsenal and admits that he has not left the Gunners with any regret.

His displays during the 2016/17 season drew interest over the summer, but the 26-year-old wanted to stay and fight for his place under Arsene Wenger.

Coquelin, who is yet to make a senior appearance for the France national team, will be presented by Valencia at 1615 United Kingdom time this afternoon.

In recent seasons, though, the midfielder has dropped down the pecking order, with the likes of Granit Xhaka, Mohamed Elneny and Jack Wilshere standing in his way.

Coquelin made just one start in the Premier League during the current campaign which prompted him to look for a move elsewhere.

Valencia have confirmed the signing of midfielder Francis Coquelin from Arsenal on a four-and-a-half year deal.

"I spoke on the phone, we had a good contact, a good conversation, so I am very happy to be here today", Coquelin said. I nearly regret not having come before. "I think it's an excellent opportunity for me and I'm very grateful", he added.

"Something clicked then, I played a lot of matches, and we won a cup and finished in the podium [top three] several times". I trust what he tells me.
