Valencia complete signing of Coquelin from Arsenal

Valencia have completed the signing of French midfielder Francis Coquelin from Arsenal.

The La Liga club confirmed the move for the 26-year-old on their official website, with a fee in the region of £12m thought to have been agreed.

Coquelin arrived at Valencia in the early hours of Thursday on a private plane and underwent a medical in the morning before putting pen to paper on a contract that is to run until June 2022.

A statement read: “Valencia CF have agreed a deal this Thursday with Arsenal regarding the transfer of Francis Coquelin, who will wear the black and white colours of the club during a deal that will run until June 30th 2022, with a buy-out clause of €80 million.

“The player will be presented to the media at 17:15CET, at the club’s Media Center at Paterna.”

Coquelin joined Arsenal’s academy at 17 in 2008 and made 105 Premier League appearances for the Gunners.

He signed a new deal at Arsenal a year ago but Arsene Wenger confirmed on Wednesday evening that the player was leaving in search of first-team football.

He started four of Arsenal’s Europa League games this season but has made just seven Premier League appearances and only one as a starter.
