Laurent Koscielny leaves Arsenal after nine years. The 33-year-old French defender continues his career with Girondins de Bordeaux.

Koscielny alluded to a transfer for some time. To the disappointment of Arsenal last month, he refused to travel with the selection to the United States for a training camp.

"We are very disappointed with Laurent's behavior. It violates our instructions. We hope to resolve this quickly and do not comment further," Arsenal said at the time in a statement.
