The Wales midfielder is without a club after settling the final year of his contract with Juventus last month. Sportsmail revealed on July 17 that Ramsey was in talks with Juventus after finding himself surplus to requirements for boss Massimiliano Allegri.

Welsh midfielder Ramsey is keen to secure first-team football ahead of the winter World Cup
Ramsey's priority was to find a club who would offer him regular football ahead of the tournament in Qatar, which starts in November and where Wales will face England in the group phase.
Despite his struggles under Allegri at Juventus, former Arsenal star Ramsey has produced consistently impressive performances at international level. Along with Gareth Bale, Ramsey is the outfield player boss Rob Page cannot do without.
Ramsey's differences with Allegri were made clear last year when the former Arsenal man expressed dissatisfaction with the Juve boss' training methods last October.
International team-mate Gareth Bale (centre) is in a similar situation, having left Real Madrid on a free transfer this summer and joined MLS side Los Angeles FC to gain regular minutes
He said: 'The training philosophy and methods are different in my club from when I'm with Wales.
'There are a lot of people working for Wales who have a number of years of managing me. So they know how to get the best out of me and allow me to play a lot of games in a row.
'Because my outputs in games are pretty high, maybe I need a bit more rest and recovery throughout the week rather than maybe being on the grass for a long period of time and carrying more fatigue into games.'
