Arsenal youngster Coquelin completes Lorient move

Arsenal youngster Francis Coquelin has completed his move to Lorient.

The Daily Mail says Coquelin has completed a one-year loan move from Arsenal to Lorient in a deal that will help smooth Laurent Koscielny's switch in the opposite direction.

Lorient confirmed the loan of 19-year-old midfielder Coquelin, while the Ligue 1 club's boss Christian Gourcuff admitted Koscielny was on his way out.

"Laurent will leave," said Gourcuff. "If Arsenal really want him, they will pay the right fee."
