Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has undergone successful surgery on a double break of his right leg, but the club cannot predict when he will return to action.

The 19-year-old was injured in a tackle from Stoke midfielder Ryan Shawcross in Saturday's 3-1 Premier League victory at the Britannia Stadium.

The Wales international went under the knife on Saturday night but it is still too early to speculate when the player might return.

A club statement read: "During yesterday's match against Stoke City, Aaron Ramsey sustained fractures to the tibia and fibula in his right leg. Yesterday evening he underwent surgery.

"The operation successfully reduced the fractures and whilst it is too soon to state an exact timescale for recovery, Aaron will certainly miss the remainder of this season.

"Our thoughts are with Aaron at this time and everyone at the club wishes him all the best in making as speedy a return to action as possible."
