Aaron Ramsey free to leave Arsenal after contract breakdown – reports
Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey is free to leave the club at the end of the season, having been told his contract won’t be extended at the club.
The 28-year-old has been at the Emirates Stadium for eleven years since his move from Cardiff City, but now the Caerphilly-born midfielder will have to search for a new club.
Ramsey had been waiting on a decision why his contract offer was withdrawn by the Arsenal hierarchy but was told today that his services were no longer required, according to Sky Sports.
Ramsey was the match winner for Arsenal in the FA Cup final in 2013/2014 against Hull and then in 2016/2017 against Chelsea, he has won three FA Cups in his ten years at Arsenal.
He has made 341 appearances in all competitions, scoring 59 goals. His best season going in the 2013/2014, where he scored sixteen. At Arsenal, he won the Player of the Season award in 2014, as well as last season in Wenger’s final season in charge of Arsenal.
Despite his contract issues, Ramsey has played in all of Arsenal’s Premier League games this season under Unai Emery. Ramsey assisted Lacazette twice in their win over Everton, as well as getting a goal and an assist against Fulham in a 23-minute cameo.
For his country, Ramsey has played four times under new Wales manager Ryan Giggs this year, scoring against Ireland back in September. He played in the defeat to Spain, but missed the narrow win over Ireland earlier this month, due to the birth of his two children.
