Earlier when Arsenal was heading to USA for their pre-season games, the Gunners captain Laurent Koscielny revealed that he doesn’t want to join the squad as he was looking forward to leaving the North London side.

And now Arsenal have confirmed that the centre back will be joining Ligue 1 side Bordeaux.

Official statement from Arsenal reads:

“The centre back has made 353 appearances for us since signing from Lorient in 2010. He was part of our Emirates FA Cup-winning squads in 2014, 2015 and 2017.

“Laurent, who started his career in the French second division at Guingamp in 2004, has played 51 matches for France and was entering the final year of his current contract with us. We decided to sanction his move to Bordeaux once we agreed acceptable transfer terms.

“We thank Laurent for his contribution to the club and wish him all the best for the future.

“The transfer is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.”
