Aaron Ramsey has addressed Arsenal fans for the first time after his move to Juventus was confirmed.

The midfielder has agreed a four-year contract with the Serie A champions which is reportedly worth £400,000 a week.

Ramsey had also attracted interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona but will now join Juventus after his contract with Arsenal expires on June 30.

The Wales international had also been in talks with Arsenal over a new deal but the Gunners withdrew their offer in September and have not restarted negotiations.

Since Ramsey spoke out about Arsenal’s decision to break off talks, the 28-year-old has been used sparingly by Unai Emery and has started just three of the club’s last 15 Premier League fixtures.

‘As you may have already heard, I have agreed a pre-contract with Juventus,’ Ramsey posted on Instagram.

‘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.

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