Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is set to quit the Premier League campaigners for free at the end of the current campaign. He had sought a large pay rise and the suspicion has been that the club do not want to push the boat out for him because they have other options in central midfield. But after his failed talks of renewal, it seems Arsenal are willing to break the loyalty of 10 years.
Aaron Ramsey insists he will stay at Arsenal for the season rather than leave in January, after confirming the club withdrew the offer of a new contract. It's believed a recent input from head coach Unai Emery was the reason behind Arsenal's withdrawal.

Ramsey is attracting interest from a host of top clubs across Europe, which speaks for the impressive reputation that the Welsh star has built over the past decade at Arsenal.
