Arsenal's Ramsey to miss rest of season with broken leg

Arsenal have confirmed midfielder Aaron Ramsey will miss the rest of the season after suffering fractures to the tibia and fibula of his right leg. The 19-year-old Wales midfielder was injured in a horror tackle from Stoke midfielder Ryan Shawcross in Saturday's 3-1 Barclays Premier League victory at the Britannia Stadium.

A club statement read: "During yesterday's match against Stoke City, Aaron Ramsey sustained fractures to the tibia and fibula in his right leg. Yesterday evening he underwent surgery.

"The operation successfully reduced the fractures and whilst it is too soon to state an exact timescale for recovery, Aaron will certainly miss the remainder of this season.

"Our thoughts are with Aaron at this time and everyone at the club wishes him all the best in making as speedy a return to action as possible."

Ramsey was rushed to a local hospital after the incident in the 65th minute of the game and was expected to be transferred to London today.
