Valencia have completed the signing of Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin, Arsene Wenger confirmed on Wednesday night.

Valencia have announced that they have reached an agreement to sign Francis Coquelin from Arsenal, with the value of the deal reportedly worth £12 million.

Coquelin found playing time hard to come by this season for Arsenal, making six substitute appearances and just one start.

Coquelin admits he spoke to Arsenal team-mates Shkodran Mustafi, Nacho Monreal, Hector Bellerin and Santi Cazorla about life at Mestalla before making the move.

"I have seen the team, they are going along very well, they are third in the table".

The 26-year-old Frenchman has barely featured this season for the Gunners, having made just seven appearances and only one start in the Premier League in 2017-18.
