Arsenal captain, Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel with his teammates for their pre-season tour of the United States.


This was confirmed by the club in a terse statement on Thursday morning.


It read: "Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel to the US for our pre-season tour.


"We are very disappointed by Laurent's actions, which are against our clear instructions.


"We hope to resolve this matter & will not be providing any further comment at this time."


It is believed that the 34-year-old defender wants the club to cancel his contract, so he can consider offers to return to France.


Koscielny has been with the Gunners for nine years.
