Done Deal: Arsenal Star Agrees 3-Year Deal With New Club

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny has agreed to a three-year deal with French Ligue 1 club Bordeaux according to ESPN.

The ex-French international centre back is in France for his medical ahead of his move to the former French champions.

Arsenal will receive £5m for the 33-year-old defender who has one year left on his current deal with the Gunners.

Laurent Koscielny will end his nine-year stay at Arsenal this summer.

The Gunners skipper caused an uproar at the club after failing to join his teammates on their preseason tour in the United States.

The player wanted to leave Arsenal on a free transfer but that request was blocked by senior club officials who insisted that a fee must be paid if he wants to leave the club this summer.

Laurent Koscielny wanted to return to France and it seems he has finally gotten his wish.

Apart from Bordeaux, Rennes and Lyon were also interested in signing him.

Koscielny became an Arsenal player in 2010 after the Gunners paid €10m to secure his transfer from French club Lorient.

He made over 300 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal including 255 Premier League games.

During his time with the Gunners, Laurent Koscielny won three FA Cup titles.
