Coquelin extends Charlton Athletic loan

Francis Coquelin

French midfielder Francis Coquelin has extended his loan with Championship side Charlton Athletic until December 30.

Coquelin has featured three times for Charlton since arriving at The Valley earlier this month.

The 23-year-old, who has made 43 Arsenal first-team appearances, spent the 2013/14 campaign on loan at Freiburg. Shortly after returning to Arsenal from Germany, Coquelin showed his versatility when he played 90 minutes at left back against Southampton in the Capital One Cup.

Everyone at Arsenal wishes Francis well for his extended spell with Bob Peeters’ side.
