Details have surfaced on Arsenal's decision to grant Aaron Ramsey's exit from the club at the end of the summer.
The midfielder's contract at the club is due to expire at the end of this season, and Arsenal's top leadership is not ready to offer the Welshman a new deal.
Briefly.co.za understands the London club withdrew a previous deal offered to Ramsey under unclear circumstances.
However, The Mirror UK now claim Ramsey was informed the club is going in a ‘new direction’ and he does not fit in with where the Gunners are heading.
Earlier in the season, Ramsey was said close to signing a new deal with Arsenal before contract extension talks with the player's agent collapsed.
Arsenal's move not to renew the 27-year old's deal has left him disappointed, having publicly made his desire to stay at the Emirates known.
The player's tribulations at the club started shortly after the arrival of new manager, Unai Emery, who has since relegated him from his regular starting line-up.
It was previously reported that Arsenal are on the verge of losing Aaron Ramsey for free at the end of the season after withdrawing an earlier offer to the midfielder.
Meanwhile, the Welshman will not be short of offers in January when he is free to engage other clubs over a possible transfer at the end of the season.
Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Juventus are some of the top European clubs monitoring the midfielder's situation at the Emirates.
