Arsenal Midfielder Ramsey has insisted that he is in no rush to sign a new contract at Arsenal.
The Wales international is in the final year of his current deal with the club and has been offered a new contract and the club captaincy by new manager Unai Emery. But speaking to reporters on the club’s pre-season tour of Singapore he said:
“It’s my decision and whatever I decide to do, that’s on me,” he said.
“What makes it awkward is the media keep asking the questions. It’s like having a baby in the car saying, ‘Are we there yet? Are we there yet?’
“Listen, I’m a player who always gives 100 per cent, regardless of what’s going on. I will be no different to that and I will give absolutely everything to try to achieve something special this season and win football games, regardless of what is going on behind the scenes.
“We are communicating. My agent and the club are speaking but we’re yet to come to an agreement.
“I’ve still got a year left and I’m looking forward to being in an Arsenal shirt in the new season and doing my best for this club. I’m hoping to have a successful season under the new manager.”
