Ramsey reasons

Arsenal boss Unai Emery pulled the plug on Aaron Ramsey's new contract offer as he doesn't feel the player is an 'ideal midfielder'.

Ramsey was all set to stay at Arsenal beyond the summer by signing a new deal recently.

But Gunners chiefs decided to revoke their offer to the Welshman in November, meaning the player will leave on a free at the end of the season.

And ESPN claim Emery was the one who pulled the plug on Ramsey's contract due to him not fitting into his future plans.

Arsenal are aware of the midfielder's ability and work-rate but feel Emery's style of play suits a player with higher short-term bursts of energy.

Rangers DONE DEAL

Rangers have now confirmed Jermain Defoe has joined on an 18-month loan deal from Bournemouth.

Defoe joins on an 18 month loan subject to international clearance and will now join his new team-mates on a training camp in Tenerife.

And Gerrard revealed he wants a player of his experience in the dressing room as he mounts a title charge.

Gerrard said: "I'm delighted to be able to welcome Jermain to Rangers.

"He is an exceptionally talented striker and vastly experienced footballer who has scored goals at every club he has played for.

"He will be a great addition to our dressing room and we look forward to integrating him into the squad whilst we work in Tenerife over the next week."

Palace want striker

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodsgon remains on the lookout for a new striker this month having missed out on Dominic Solanke.

"Getting a striker is obviously something we would like because as we've seen once again, we can't do much more in terms of dominating games," Hodgson said.

"It's pretty obvious that if we had that person who score goals from nothing, or scores goals from half-chances, we'd be a lot higher up the Premier League and would have won our FA Cup game a lot earlier.

"It's early days in the transfer window and everybody knows this is a tough transfer window because clubs aren't eager to let players go if they're good enough.

"You're looking for the rare pearl – someone who is good enough who will make us better who at the same time for some reason is being released by their club."
