Aaron Ramsey should try to conclude his contract talks with Arsenal as soon as possible, according to his national team manager Ryan Giggs.
Ramsey joined Arsenal from Cardiff back in 2008 at the age of just 17 and was fast-tracked into the first team.
A horrific leg break in 2010 saw his career stall but the Welsh international has still made more than 300 appearances for the Gunners over his 10-year career at the club.
But he could end up leaving the Emirates for nothing next summer if he does not sign a new deal.
And Giggs, the Manchester United legend who took over as Wales boss in January, believes Ramsey should put pen to paper on a new contract for the good of his career.
“He’s at a good club,” said Giggs, speaking ahead of the Laureus 2018 World Sports Awards, which both celebrate sporting excellence and harness the power to sport to promote change.
“From a personal point of view when you’re at a club you’re used to it can help you.
“You know all the staff and the players.
“So any player who is having talks with contracts you want it sorted out as quickly as possible.”
Giggs himself played for just one club over his 24-year career, making more than 900 appearances for Manchester United.
“I was always happy,” Giggs added.
“There was always a challenge at United so I never saw any reason to leave.
“I was happy playing my football.
“I never got bored or felt the need to go anywhere else.
“I hope Aaron sorts it out sooner rather than later.”
Giggs will take charge of Wales for the first time on March 22 when they take on China in the Far East.
And the 44-year-old will be keen to have Ramsey on board for the trip – he has 52 Wales caps to his name – but is concerned about the midfielder’s fitness.
“Aaron’s had a few injury problems,” Giggs said.
“We’re in constant dialogue with all the players who’ve had little knocks and if we decide it’s best for them to stay at home we’ll do that.
“Ideally, I want everyone there because it’s my first get together but we’ll see.
“We’re monitoring constantly with the medical team and all the players at the moment.”
