TalkSPORT pundit Simon Jordan believes Arsenal have done the right choice to decline contract extensions for Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck. The duo have just seven months remaining on their existing deals and reports have recently indicated that the club won’t hand renewals for either player.
Speaking on TalkSPORT, Jordan has backed the Gunners’ decision on the players and believes there is no means for compassion when it comes to the case of Welbeck, who has been sidelined with another season-ending injury, he said: “I just think this is a clearing of the guard. It’s a changing of order, new broom, sweep clean. The idea is that Ramsey and Welbeck are probably not players that Emery sees as part of the makeup of the team that he wants to build.
