CONFIRMED: Arsenal player joins Charlton Athletic on one-month loan

HITC Sport Breaking News

Arsenal have announced that 23-year-old Francis Coquelin has moved to Championship side Charlton Athletic for the next month.

The Arsenal midfielder has made 43 first-team appearances for the Gunners and he will bring plenty of experience to the Addicks as they look to build on an impressive start to their latest campaign in the second tier.

Coquelin was previously on loan at German club Freiburg and French side Lorient where he made a total of 49 appearances.

The Frenchman has also represented his country at every level from under-17 to under-21 and he will be a canny addition to a side looking to earn promotion back to a top-flight they were once a regular part of.

Charlton are currently ninth in the Championship, three points outside the play-off places, and Coquelin is likely to slot straight into their match-day squad given his experience and versatility.
