Coquelin: I should have left Arsenal sooner

Francis Coquelin

Coquelin spoke to former Arsenal team-mates Shkodran Mustafi, Nacho Monreal, Hector Bellerin and Santi Cazorla about the move.

His deal at the Mestalla runs until the end of June 2022 and contains a buy-out clause of 80 million euros (£71million), Valencia revealed on their official website.

Francis Coquelin has agreed to join LaLiga side Valencia on a four-and-a-half-year contract following a decade with Arsenal, the Spanish club announced on Thursday.

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. He played 160 matches for Arsenal.

"I think it's an excellent opportunity for me and I'm very grateful".

"He added: "[Cazorla] told me it's an excellent club which I will not regret joining. "I trust what he tells me", Coquelin explained while praising Arsenal's injured star Cazorla.
