Unai Emery wants Ramsey to focus on his game and not his future (image courtesy Skysports)

Aaron Ramsey will leave Arsenal for free at the end of the season after the club told him in person why he will not be offered a new contract.

The Wales midfielder was understood to have been unhappy that nobody from the club had directly explained their reasons for withdrawing the offer of a new long-term deal following months of talks.

Ramsey had found out through his agent before speaking out publicly on the issue last week, telling a newspaper that he was hoping “somebody will come up and tell me why” the option to stay was taken off the table.

Ramsey has now accepted that this will be his last season at the Emirates following a decade of service to the north London club, in which he has made 341 appearances and scored 59 goals since joining from Cardiff City for just under £5m in 2008.
