Ramsey is back and aiming for the top

Last updated : 22 January 2011 By Michael Morris

The former City player has returned from Arsenal for a loan period of at least one month. Even if he returns to London on Feb 26th he will have been available for seven matches during his time back in South Wales.

Arsene Wenger wants his player up to match fitness after nearly a year out through injury. Ramsey was the victim of a horror tackle by Stoke's Ryan Shawcross.

"I thought it was the right time to come back, play in a few games and help Cardiff get a few points to get in top position again," Ramsey told BBC Sport.

"My agent spoke to Cardiff and Arsene Wenger and this was where I wanted to come.

"It has been quite a tough 10 months for me on occasions but I have had great support which has helped me through this period.

"I feel I'm nearly there now, I probably need another game or so and just need to get my mind back on the game and back into match situations.

"My aim is to get back to where I was before my injury, I hoped to get straight back into it but that was a bit optimistic.

"There have been a few changes since I was last here," said Ramsey who left when City were still at Ninian Park.

"There is a new training complex, a new stadium and the squad has changed as well as we have some of the best players in the league now.

"There have been big improvements since I was last here and the club is moving in the right direction.

"So hopefully I can play a part in the team and try to get back to my best."

Dave Jones has not ruled out Ramsey staying for longer than one month. He could even bring some more in. He said

"Every club at the top end of the division is bringing players in and we are no different as I'm still looking for another two apart from those who have arrived this week.

"With regards to Aaron Ramsey, it's an open loan, and hopefully we can keep him longer than a month, but that will be up to Arsenal."
