Calum Chambers signs contract extension


Arsenal have announced that Calum Chambers has signed a new deal with the club.

The 22 year old has signed a two year extension to his current deal which will keep him at the club until 2021.

Chambers signed from Southampton in the summer of 2014 for a fee of £16m, but after a bright start to his career with the Gunners found himself on the fringes of the team.

He had a successful loan spell at Middlesbrough last season and although widely tipped to depart during the summer, Arsenal rebuffed a £20m+ bid from Crystal Palace and kept him around.

He has only played 45 minutes this season due to a hip injury but is expected back soon.

Via his Instagram account, Chambers reacted to the new deal, saying, “Proud to sign a new contract with Arsenal. I know I’m still a young player and I want to have my best years playing for this football club.

“I want to win as many trophies with Arsenal as possible. I’m going to repay the fans for the faith they’ve shown in me. Can’t wait to get going again. #COYG

It’s certainly a show of faith in him, let’s hope he can find his way again.
