Aaron Ramsey has addressed Arsenal fans for the first time, after his move to Juventus was confirmed.
Ramsey had been in talks with Arsenal over a new deal, but the Gunners withdrew their offer in September.
The 28-year-old midfielder has now agreed a four-year contract with the Serie A champions, which is reportedly worth £400,000 a week.
“As you may have already heard, I have agreed a pre-contract with Juventus.
“I wanted to issue a personal statement for all the Arsenal fans who have been extremely loyal and supportive.
“You welcomed me as a teenager and have been there for me through all the highs and lows I’ve encountered during my time at the club.
“It is with a heavy heart that I leave after 11 incredible years in north London. Thank you.
