Aaron Ramsey announces Juventus move with heartfelt statement

Juventus confirmed the transfer on Monday evening

It was confirmed on Monday night that Aaron Ramsey had signed a pre-contract with Juventus, bringing his 11 year spell at Arsenal to an end.

Ramsey will join the Serie A club in the summer on a free transfer, having run his contract with Arsenal down to its final six months, and will earn a reported £400,000 per week before tax.

The 28-year-old joined Arsenal from Cardiff City as an 18-year-old, and went on to become a central figure of the team, scoring their most important goal of the past decade - against Hull City to bring their nine-year trophy drought to an end.

The Welshman has issued a heartfelt statement on his Twitter page, confirming the news of his imminent transfer thanking Arsenal fans for their continued support.

"I wanted to issue a personal statement to all the Arsenal fans who have been extremely loyal and supportive," the statement reads.

"You welcomed me as a teenager and have been there for me through all the highs and the lows I've encountered during my time at the club.

"It is with a heavy heart that I leave after 11 incredible years in North London. Thank you."

"I will continue to give the team 100% and hope to finish the season strongly, before heading onto my next chapter in Turin.

"Kind regards, Aaron."
