Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Gunners make Rice ‘proposal’, Saka and Odegaard ‘will sign new deals’, Saliba BATTLE

Aaron is here to stay

Aaron Ramsdale is fed up with moving clubs and wants to spend the rest of his career at ArsEnal, writes MARK IRWIN.

And considering the England goalkeeper just turned 25 last Sunday, that’s quite a commitment.

But after being sacked by Bolton as a schoolboy, loaned to Worksop Town, Chesterfield and AFC Wimbledon and sold by Sheffield United (twice) and Bournemouth, it’s little wonder he’s ready to put down roots.

And even the bitter disappointment of missing out on the Premier League title hasn’t diminished his commitment to Mikel Arteta’s young team.

For the first time since signing a new contract until 2027, Ramsdale says: “My aim is to stay at Arsenal for the next ten years and to pursue my career here.”

“As a footballer, it’s very difficult to stay in one place for a long time, make a home and raise a family, but I don’t want to move anymore.

“I want to be a mainstay of this club and do special things, win trophies and see how far this team can go.

“You get new contracts for performing on the pitch and maybe exceeding expectations and that shows the confidence that the manager and the club have in me.”

“Having been at the top of the table for almost the entire season, we are of course very disappointed at the moment.

“But we’re playing against a side who have just won 11 games in a row and for Arsenal this has been an extremely progressive season for a really young side who will come back hungrier than ever.”
