Football Player

Aaron Ramsey is a midfielder who plays for Arsenal and Wales. Aaron James Ramsey trained in the Cardiff City youth setup from 1999 to 2006 and played 22 senior matches for Cardiff. On 13th June 2008, Ramsey was bought by Arsenal for around £5 million, turning down moves to Everton and Manchester United to play for the North London club. Ramsey made his début for Arsenal soon after, playing against FC Twente in the third qualifying round of the Champions League on the 12th of August 2008.

Ramsey is mostly deployed as a box-to-box midfielder, and was gaining plenty of match-time for Arsenal between 2008 and 2010. However, on the 27th of February 2010 during a Premier League visit to Stoke City, Ramsey suffered a double leg fracture from a tackle by Ryan Shawcross at a point in his career when he was beginning to flourish. Ramsey returned to training with Arsenal following his injury in October 2010, and shortly after joined Nottingham Forest on a short-term loan until January 2011 to continue his rehabilitation. Ramsey made five appearances for Nottingham Forest before going on another loan spell, returning to his boyhood club Cardiff City on a one month loan.

Ramsey returned to Arsenal and made his first start back at the club on the 19th March 2011 against West Brom. The 2011-2012 season saw Aaron Ramsey featuring more regularly for Arsenal, but he was heavily criticised by fans and looked to still be struggling the after-effects of his injury. The 2012-2013 season saw Ramsey start to regain some of his form and sharpness, but it was during the 2013-2014 season that Ramsey really began to shine, scoring 8 times in 16 games before suffering a thigh injury at West Ham United on the 26th December 2013.
