Aaron Ramsey signs - official

Last updated : 13 June 2008 By Chris Parry
Arsene Wenger had this to say about him:

"We're delighted to have signed Aaron Ramsey.

"He is a young player who has shown huge potential with his performances for both Cardiff City and Wales at under-17 and under-21 levels. He is still only 17, but has already shown that he is a very intelligent and mature player with great quality.

"Although he mainly plays in midfield, Aaron is a versatile player and can also play across the defence. We are all looking forward to welcoming Aaron to the club for our pre-season preparations."

Quite how the lad will fit into the system I'm not sure - In all probability he'll become part of the squad for cup games until he finds his feet, but who knows? - maybe he'll show enough promise to warrant at least a place on the subs bench for a Premiership game. His future is largely in his own hands now that's for sure.
