One midfielder Premier League fans will not be seeing anymore of this season is Francis Coquelin, after the Arsenal man completed his £12m move to Spanish side Valencia.

The Frenchman leaves the Emirates after 10 years with Arsene Wenger's side, during which time he lifted the FA Cup on two occasions.

Coquelin's move however, very nearly kept him a lot closer to north London. Reports had been circling that West Ham were interested in the midfielder, though no deal with Arsenal ever materialised and the Frenchman is now on the way to Spain.

Judging by their reaction on Twitter however, certain sections of the West Ham faithful don't seem too concerned about missing out Coquelin, with many expressing relief at missing out on the midfielder.

Some Hammers fans however, felt that Coquelin would have been a good addition to their side.

While they may have missed out on Coquelin, West Ham will still be hopeful of bringing more players in during the January window, with the club looking set for a relegation battle as they sit just two points clear of the relegation zone ahead of Saturday's trip to Huddersfield.
