Aaron Ramsey has confirmed he will leave Arsenal to join Juventus at the end of the season.

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

Ramsey has made use of the fact that he will arrive in Turin without the hefty cost of a transfer fee and therefore has been offered a substantial increase on wages.

The Welshman passed a two-part medical in January, having picked Juve following talks with a host of European clubs.

He will be the highest-earning British player ever based on basic salary.

The Welshman wrote on his Instagram: ‘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.’

Arsenal did present Ramsey with the offer of a new deal in September but it was turned down and the club were not prepared to meet his salary demands.

The 28 year-old has played 259 times for Arsenal, scoring 61 times.
