  • Arsenal FC transfer news Francis Coquelin completes move to La Liga side Valencia

Valencia has agreed to a deal worth £12 million (RM64.5 million) for Coquelin (left), according to British media reports.

Having made just seven Premier League starts for Arsene Wenger's side this term, it is a decision Coquelin admits might not have been the right one.

The former France Under-21 worldwide, who has yet to make a senior appearance for his country, says he spoke to several of his Arsenal colleagues - including Spain global Santi Cazorla - before committing to a move to LaLiga.

"Valencia have this Thursday reached an agreement with Arsenal for the transfer of Francis Coquelin", the club confirmed in a statement. "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 let him go", Wenger said after Wednesday's 0-0 draw with Chelsea.

'I think I was looking at it on TV yesterday, and they were saying who Arsenal can sign.

Browns hiring Packers executive Eliot Wolf
A former National Football League running back, Highsmith spent 19 years in Green Bay's scouting department. Wolf reportedly also had an opportunity to join Reggie McKenzie with the Oakland Raiders .

"He goes to Valencia because he didn't get enough games with us this season and he had an opportunity".

On Arsenal's January window dealings, which could see Alexis Sanchez leave, he continued: 'Yes [it could be tricky] in a way, because we've been waiting for those guys to come and make sure they can help this team play better.

Coquelin has spent nearly a decade at Arsenal, with a total of 159 appearances being made in all competitions during his time in North London.

The 2013/14 campaign saw another foreign loan, this time to Freiburg in Germany, and his Gunners career looked to be petering out until an injury crisis resulted in Coquelin being recalled early from a loan at Charlton Athletic in December 2014 and thrust in to the team.
