Ramsey set for Cardiff medical after rejecting Saudi Arabia move

Aaron Ramsey is set to undergo a medical with Cardiff City after rejecting a lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia.

The 32-year-old midfielder is poised to return to the club where he started his career despite triggering a 12-month extension at Nice after playing a set number of matches for the Ligue 1 outfit last season.

Ramsey, the Wales captain and former Arsenal star, has made no secret of his desire to be closer to his Cardiff-based family and turned down a move to the Saudi Pro League.

"This season has been a success for me personally, I played a lot of games and some good football," Ramsey said on international duty last month.

"The most challenging thing is being away from my family. That's the situation I find myself in. I've been away from my family and seeing the kids growing up, missing out, it's always difficult. Difficult for anyone to go through, I imagine.

"Whatever we do going forward, we will be reunited and back together."
