Ryan rejoined the club in 2013 after calling time on a 10-year playing career.

Ryan started at Arsenal's academy in 1999 and progressed through the age groups to win the FA Youth Cup in 2001, signing professional terms with the Gunners that summer.

The defender continued to impress for the academy and reserve sides, and was rewarded with his first-team debut against Sunderland in the 2002/03 League Cup.

Ryan then made his first senior start in Arsenal's 6-1 win against Southampton the following May, the first match of their famous 49-unbeaten run, before he joined Bournemouth at the end of the 2006/07 season.

He went on to make 77 league appearances for the Cherries, scoring three goals, in his four years there but was forced into retirement at the age of 27 due to a persistent leg injury.

From there, Ryan undertook a coaching role at Bournemouth in 2011 before rejoining Arsenal as a coach two years later.
