Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed Francis Coquelin is set to complete a move to Valencia this January.
The 26-year-old leaves for Spain in what is expected to be a £12m deal, having joined the Gunners as a youth player in 2008.
He made 105 Premier League appearances and signed a new deal at Arsenal in January 2017.
Wenger confirmed the transfer after Arsenal’s Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg draw with Chelsea on Wednesday.
“He goes to Valencia because he didn’t get enough games with us this season and he had an opportunity. I let him go,” said Wenger.
