The young Frenchman seemed to be on his way out the door last year when he was shipped out to Charlton Athletic on loan.
However, since breaking back into the first team recently, he has been awarded with a new deal as he looks to cement his place in the starting XI even further.
“I’m really pleased, I’ve been here since 2008 so it feels like a second home for me,” Coquelin said.
“It wasn’t really a tough decision, I have been here long enough and I know everyone here.
“Everyone makes me feel good every day, and hopefully there will be more good years to come as well.
“This is what is magic about football: one day you are unknown and the next day you are a bit bigger. I think the most important thing is to stay the same as I have been doing for the last few years.
“If I stay the same I am not worried, I know I can help the team and hopefully I can do that in the coming years.”
