Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey signs new contract...with male model agency

Posted by Chris Wright

He may have spent the past few weeks waylaid by a troublesome thigh injury, but that hasn't stopped Arsenal midfielder Aaron 'Blue Steel' Ramsey from putting pen to paper on a brand new contract...

That's right; thanks to his photogenic face, Ramsey has found himself being brought on board by Elite Models as the London-based agency's first signing of the January window.

Ramsey, who now has his very own profile on the Elite website, had this to say:

“I was approached by Elite and it was perfect timing – and a great opportunity for me, as I had been thinking about doing some other things outside of my football career. Obviously football is my main focus and always will be; I would never jeopardise that for anything. So I will have to manage my time well so that I can also take advantage of all the amazing opportunities that Elite can offer me.”

We sure there's a "model professional" joke in there somewhere but, frankly, we're far too high-brow to make it.
