Ramsey's Juventus contract terminated

Aaron Ramsey's Juventus contract has been terminated by mutual consent.

The Wales midfielder had 12 months left on his deal in Turin but is now free to find another club ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

"Aaron Ramsey's contract with Juventus has been mutually terminated," the Serie A club said on their Twitter account. 

"All the best,@aaronramsey!"

Ramsey made 83 appearances for Juventus after joining the club as a free agent when he left Arsenal in the summer of 2019.

He spent the second half of last season on loan at Rangers.

Ramsey, 31, began his career at hometown club Cardiff City before going on to spend more than a decade at Arsenal.

The Wales international midfielder was linked with several Premier League clubs before make the temporary move to Ibrox last season.

Juventus did not give Ramsey a squad number ahead of the new season and left him out of the club's pre-season tour to the United States.

Ramsey made just five appearances for Juve last season and the news of his departure will be welcomed by Wales manager Robert Page ahead of the World Cup in November.

While on international duty, Ramsey has remained a key player for Wales and Page wants him to be playing regular first-team football before the World Cup.

There has been interest from the MLS, where Ramsey's Wales team-mate Gareth Bale has recently signed for Los Angeles FC.

But it is understood that Ramsey prefers to join a Premier League club to be closer to his Cardiff home.
