In the clearest indication yet that Aaron Ramsey is set to sign a new deal at Arsenal, his agency Avid Sports & Entertainment Group have tweeted a competition to win the Welshman’s shirt.
This follows a day of increasingly cryptic tweets from the recently set up sports agency.
Avid Sports & Entertainment Group we’re established in January this year by Ramsey’s long term agent David Baldwin.
Baldwin left Base Soccer in January 2018 to set up his own company, taking Aaron Ramsey with him. It is not clear if the Arsenal player has a financial interest in the company.
Early talk was that Baldwin was unable to represent any of his former clients for 6 months after leaving Base Soccer due to contractual convenance.
This resulted in Ramsey stalling in a new deal as he wanted Baldwin involved in talks, and to get a commission.
7 months on from him setting up Avid and it seems Ramsey, 27, is now ready to sign his new deal.
Ramsey’s wife, Colleen, is currently 30 weeks pregnant with twins, so it was always unlikely that he would up root his family – which already includes a young son – for a move abroad.
And announcement is expected to be imminent.
