Wales boss Chris Coleman has backed midfielder Aaron Ramsey to secure regular first-team football for Arsenal amid talks he may be loaned out.
Coleman has faith in the talented 21-year-old, who captains his Welsh side, to prove himself at the very top.
Ramsey is set for talks over an improved deal at Arsenal that will keep him there until 2016 after other star players' contracts were allowed to run down.
Coleman said: "I heard rumours that he could go out on loan but he shouldn't be thinking about anything other than Arsenal because he is good enough to play for them."
Arsenal are said to be impressed by the way Ramsey has battled back from a horrific leg break at Stoke in 2010 since which he has become Welsh captain.
