Ramsey should consider Arsenal loan exit, says Hartson

Wales assistant manager John Hartson believes Aaron Ramsey should look to leave Arsenal on loan in order to play regular football in his best position, the BBC has reported.

Hartson added that he feels Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has a lot of faith in the former Wales captain, shown by the decision to sign Ramsey to a new five-year contract last month, but also that Ramsey is suffering by being played on the left side of Arsenal’s attack and not in his more natural central midfield role.

I don't think playing on the left, wide left, is his position. [Against Swansea on Sunday] he looked lost at times,” Hartson said, adding: “He did some very good things in the game but obviously Arsene Wenger didn't think it was his greatest performance because he took him off.” Ramsey was replaced after just over 70 minutes, with Lukas Podolski coming on in his place.

Hartson also claimed that Ramsey, 22, is in need of a run of matches where he plays the full 90 minutes in his best position. “Maybe if he did go out on loan [he'd get that], because he doesn't seem to start many games at Arsenal now and when he does start he's brought off and he doesn't look happy,” the former Celtic striker said.

As well as Celtic, Hartson also played for Luton Town, Arsenal, West Ham United and Wimbledon, scoring 14 league goals for Arsenal in 54 appearances, and winning 51 caps and scoring 14 goals as a player for Wales.
