Emery rules out Welbeck exit


Arsenal manager Unai Emery has ruled out the possibility of Danny Welbeck leaving the club.

The Premier League's transfer window closed on Thursday but clubs can still sell players to European teams until the end of the month.

Welbeck has been linked with a move away from the Emirates but Emery has made it clear that the England international will not be going anywhere as only Carl Jenkinson, David Ospina and Joel Campbell will be allowed to leave.

"Yesterday, the window closed here in the Premier League. Today, we had a meeting with the players to close all the possibilities to bring more players," Emery told reporters at his ahead of Arsenal's Premier League opener against Manchester City.

"We only have three players: Carl Jenkinson, David Ospina and Joel Campbell, with the possibility to leave. But the other players are with us and we are going to work in the Emirates the day before the match with all the players."

Emery is also hopeful that Aaron Ramsey will sign a new contract sooner rather than later.

"That's not my work. For me it's very important he stays with us. His experience here in Arsenal and the Premier League is very important and will give us all the information and performances in his quality," he said.
