Welsh teenager puts pen-to-paper on new contract

Arsenal have announced that Wales international Aaron Ramsey has signed a long-term contract extension with the club. The Gunners won the race for the 18-year-old's signature last summer, securing his services from Cardiff City for £5million. Ramsey made 22 appearances in all competitions during his debut season at Emirates Stadium, netting one goal in the UEFA Champions League. Arsenal have now opted to tie the midfielder down on new terms, much to the delight of manager Arsene Wenger. Wenger told the club's official website: "We're delighted that Aaron has signed a new long-term contract. "He made a very good contribution in his first season and he showed that he is a very intelligent player with great quality. "He is still only 18 and we're really looking forward to seeing him develop with us in the forthcoming years."
