'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.

Aaron Ramsey has confirmed that he will leave Arsenal with a "heavy heart" after signing a four-year contract with Serie A club Juventus worth about £300,000 a week.

The 28-year-old declined a contract offer from Arsenal back in September and will move to Italy in a free transfer.

There was interest from various European giants, including Bayern Munich and PSG, but Ramsey's final decision was to join Juventus, where he will play alongside Miralem Pjanić and Blaise Matuidi in a midfield trio - quite the upgrade from Mateo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka.

Ramsey's current Arsenal deal will expire at the end of the season and contract talks between the two parties broke down in the latter stages of 2018 as the Gunners were unprepared to meet the midfielder's demands.

Arsenal also released a statement, thanking Ramsey for his time at the club saying: "Aaron's made a fantastic contribution to our club since joining from Cardiff City in 2008".

The BBC's David Ornstein reports that Ramsey will earn £400,000 a week, making him the highest-earning British player in the world. He won the FA Cup under Arsene Wenger in 2014, 2015 and 2017.

Following the announcement, Ramsey issued a statement himself on his social media account.

"I will continue to give the team 100% and hope to finish the season strongly, before heading onto my next chapter in Turin".
