(BBC) Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel on the club’s pre-season tour of the US.

The 33-year-old France defender is out of contract at the end of the 2019-20 season and is a reported target for French clubs Bordeaux, Rennes and Lyon.

“We are very disappointed by Laurent’s actions, which are against our clear instructions,” said Arsenal.

Bordeaux have reportedly offered Koscielny a three-year deal.

The central defender joined Arsenal in the summer of 2010 for a fee of around £10m.

He has played 353 times for the Gunners and won the FA Cup twice, in 2013-14 and 2014-15.
