VALENCIA, Spain (AP) - Francis Coquelin has left Arsenal to join Valencia, ending his decade-long association with the English club.

Valencia announced the signing of the French holding midfielder on Thursday on a contract until June 2022. Neither club disclosed the transfer fee.

The 26-year-old Coquelin joined Arsenal in 2008, at the age of 16, and had spells out on loan until becoming a regular in first-team squads from the 2014-15 season. He played 160 matches for Arsenal.

He has represented France at every youth level from under-17 to under-21.
