Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey has complete trust in the Arsenal medical staff to let him know when he will be fit and ready for a return to action.

The 20-year-old is closing in on a comeback following eight months of rehabilitation after suffering a broken leg in a challenge with Stoke's Ryan Shawcross in February. Ramsey has been forced to take things gradually and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger admits impatience is often the most difficult hurdle for a young player to overcome following a serious injury.

"I think it depends on the individual, sometimes people like to take a bit longer to make sure everything is spot on and some people want to get back as soon as they can," Ramsey told Arsenal TV Online. "I am just going with what the staff are saying here. I trust them and I am just doing the best I can at this moment in time."

Ramsey hopes he will be fully fit again by the end of the year.

"I am just doing my pre-season work now, trying to get a bit of spring back in my right leg, but apart from that all is going well so far," he added. "I have been doing strengthening exercises and those sorts of things for a long time now and I am starting to feel the benefits.

"I am now outside training with the fitness coach. It feels great to be back outside and kicking the ball around again. I think I am on track, the target is November time.

"I am a very motivated guy and I have missed it a lot. It has made me realise how much it means to me. I just want to get back out there and start doing what I used to do."

Wenger will be keeping his fingers crossed his players return in good health from the international break, having already seen full-back Bacary Sagna ruled out for up to three weeks after sustaining a thigh problem while away with France.

Arsenal have lost their last two Premier League games, with the 2-0 defeat at Chelsea leaving them seven points off the pace and in danger of slipping out of the top four.

Skipper Cesc Fabregas was not involved for Spain against Scotland at Hampden Park on Tuesday night, but expects to return from his hamstring problem to face Birmingham at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
