New Gunners deal for Coquelin

The 20-year-old, who has featured in defence recently due to an injury crisis, himself joined the casualty list as he suffered a hamstring problem in Monday night's FA Cup win over Leeds.

However his future at The Emirates is secure after the agreement of his new deal, which Arsenal confirmed on their official website.

Coquelin has made 12 first-team appearances for Arsenal in this campaign, after spending last season on loan with French top-flight club Lorient.
