Arsenal chief Sanllehi: Welbeck release just like Ramsey

Arsenal football chief Raul Sanllehi has explained the decision to release Danny Welbeck.

The striker will be allowed to come off contract next month.

Sanllehi told arsenal.com: "In ways it is quite similar to the Aaron (Ramsey) situation. This summer we were in talks with him to see if [he would stay or go], he had several offers, he decided to continue in the club until the end of the contract.

"We respected that. We knew that he was going to add a lot to the club over the last year, but again, we were in the last year of contract so it was a very similar situation."
