Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is delighted with additions of Yossi Benayoun and Mikel Arteta.

Arteta and loanee Benayoun signed from Everton and Chelsea respectively and will add some much-needed depth to an Arsenal midfield that has been hit by the sales of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, plus a series of injuries and suspensions.

Ramsey said: "They are both great players with plenty of Premier League experience. They are two players who have great qualities and hopefully they can bring something to the team.

"So far we have struggled with injuries so it is much better to have players in ready to play and to have that competition to keep you on top of your game."
