Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny is keen to end his playing career at former club Lorient, according to president Loic Fery.

Lorient chairman Loic Fery has claimed that Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny wants to return to the French club before the end of his career.

Since moving to North London in 2010, Koscielny has established himself as the club's first-choice centre-back, with 301 appearances being made in all competitions.

Koscielny also penned a new contract earlier this year, but Fery has suggested that the French international is planning on another spell with Lorient by 2020.

Fery told Canal+ Sport: "He told me last week in London that he wanted to finish his career at Lorient. I hope he has a few more years playing at Arsenal."

During the 2009-10 campaign, Koscielny made 35 league appearances for Lorient, with his performances leading to Arsene Wenger paying £9.7m to take him to the Emirates Stadium.
