Ramsey in dark over Robin van Persie

Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey admits he and his team-mates have no idea how the situation will pan out with want-away striker Robin van Persie.

The Holland international last week issued a statement on his official website revealing he would not be penning an extension to his current deal with the Gunners, which expires next summer.

It is yet to be seen whether Arsenal decide to cash in on Van Persie, although manager Arsene Wenger recently declared the club must retain their talisman "at all costs".

Ramsey was coy when asked about Van Persie's future today and revealed he and his team-mates do not know what the outcome will be.

"There is no need for me to get involved in that," he said.

"I don't know and we as players don't know what is happening, so we will just have to wait to see."

Reports suggest Van Persie could be set for a move to Manchester City, meaning an extra burden could fall on the shoulders of summer signings Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud -- players Ramsey has backed to succeed.
