Aaron Ramsey has suggested his future lies at Arsenal after hailing Unai Emery's arrival as an "exciting time" for the Premier League club.

Ramsey, who has just a year left to run on his current contract, has been in talks with the north London club over a new deal for several months that have yet to result in agreement.

His future at the club following Arsene Wenger's departure has been widely speculated on, but Sky sources understand Emery intends to make the Wales international central to his plans at the Emirates.

Speaking after Wales' 0-0 draw against Mexico on Tuesday, Ramsey gave his backing to the former Paris St Germain manager.

Asked if he was looking forward to working with Emery, Ramsey replied: "Of course. I haven't spoken to him at all yet, but I think it's an exciting time for the club.

"I can't wait to get back there now."

"I rolled my ankle but I'd taken the armband from Ash and I thought I had to stay on and do my bit for the team," Ramsey said.

"It wasn't the best surface in the world and my ankle is a bit sore.

"Hopefully there will be no lasting damage and it will settle down over the next few days."
