Arsenal Rejected Cardiff City’s Last-Minute Loan Move for Aaron Ramsey

Cardiff City made a last-ditch move to get Aaron Ramsey back on a loan deal, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was reluctant to let his Summer signing go back to Ninian Par on a load deal. On the very last day of the transfer deadline, Arsene Wenger himself was desperate to land one more midfielder to bolster his midfield, but could not materialize any of his bids. So, naturally there was no reason Wenger could have accepted Cardiff City last-minute loan move for the Welshman.

The departures of Mathew Flamini, Alexander Hleb and Gilberto Silva in the Summer left a void in Arsenal midfield, even though Wenger landed French youngster Samir Nasri to come to terms with the loses of the regular midfielders. 17-year-old Aaron Ramsey was signed from Cardiff City during Summer transfer window, but it is almost sure that his appearance in his debut season will largely be restricted to Carling Cup. That is what made Cardiff City interested to make an eleventh-hour move for Aaron Ramsey.
