One of the Arsenal players who is set to see his contract at the club expire next summer has revealed that negotiations were held over a new deal.
New Arsenal manager Unai Emery has inherited a solid squad from Arsene Wenger but the fact that the team is still competing in the Europa League this season has seen some fans question any hopes of challenging for the Premier League title.
If the Gunners are to make a strong push for the title this season, all of the team’s key players will be required to stay committed to the club.
And one man whose commitment has recently been questioned is Aaron Ramsey, following the news that the club has decided that he will not be handed a new contract.
Even so, the Welshman has confirmed that negotiations were in fact held with the club over a new contract but both parties could not come to a complete agreement.
“Everything has been going great with the club – we thought we were in a position where we had agreed a deal but that’s no longer the case,” Ramsey said.
“So I just have to carry on playing my football and do my best for Arsenal this season and I’ll leave the rest with the club.
“Am I disappointed? That’s a decision they have made and things happen in football and you just have to get on with it. That’s all I am concentrating on and giving my best for Arsenal.”
