Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has undergone surgery after breaking his right leg in two places in his side's 3-1 Barclays Premier League victory at Stoke City, the club announced.

The 19-year-old Wales international was stretchered off after being fouled by Stoke centre-back Ryan Shawcross in the second half of the game on Saturday. Shawcross was promptly sent off and left the field in tears.

"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," read a statement from the club.

"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."

Ramsey, who joined Arsenal from Cardiff City in June 2008, has been withdrawn from the Wales squad that shall face Sweden in a friendly game in Swansea on Wednesday. He had made 29 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions this season, scoring four goals.
