Arsenal have agreed a deal to sell defender Laurent Koscielny to Ligue 1 side Bordeaux for a fee of up to 5m euros (£4.6m).
The 33-year-old centre-back is having a medical on Tuesday before completing a return to France after nine years with the Premier League club.
Frenchman Koscielny had a year left on his contract at Emirates Stadium and the Gunners wanted him to stay.
But he asked for a free transfer and refused to travel on a pre-season tour.
Former France international Koscielny rejected a new contract that he felt undervalued his contribution and continued ability.
Arsenal began disciplinary proceedings and instructed the captain to train with the under-23s, but offered him a way back into the first-team squad for the new season.
However, Koscielny had no intention of reversing his decision and was determined to secure a move to his home country.
