Arsenal told Aaron Ramsey they had withdrawn their contract offer to the midfielder because he no longer fits their vision of the club’s future, according to the Metro.
The midfielder had not given up hope of renewing talk over a new deal but Arsenal have finally told Ramsey in person that his time at the club is up.
Ramsey told reporters last week that he still hadn’t been told why the offer of a contract extension had been rescinded by the club.
But senior figures have since had a face-to-face talk with the Welshman to explain their stance and to confirm that negotiations won’t be renewed, a source said.
The conversation was first reported by Sky Sports News.
That leaves Ramsey able to leave as a free agent when his deal expires next year, with a January sale unlikely.
Ramsey could command a larger signing-on fee in the summer, while other clubs are not expected to put in large bids just six months earlier.
Ramsey is disappointed in the way he’s been treated and he had hoped to stay at the club.
However, the Welshman will not be short of offers in January when he’s free to speak to other clubs about a free transfer at the end of the season.
