Calum Chambers: Arsenal make surprise contract announcement

ARSENAL have announced Calum Chambers has signed a two-year contract extension until 2021.
Chambers joined Arsenal from Southampton for around £16million in summer 2014 and made an instant impact which led to him making his debut for England against Norway.

But he lost his place in the team and last season was sent on loan to Middlesbrough, where he made 24 appearances as they were relegated to the Championship.

The 22-year-old was linked with a move away from Arsenal in the summer but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger decided to keep him at the club and he has now been rewarded with a new deal.
Arsenal said in a statement: “Everyone at Arsenal is looking forward to Calum’s continued contribution to the club.”

Chambers made his first appearance of the season against Doncaster last month but lasted just 45 minutes after suffering a a hip problem.

The versatile defender has now recovered and could return to first-team squad this weekend against Watford.

Shkodran Mustafi is out with a hamstring injury while Laurent Koscielny is a doubt due to a longstanding Achilles injury.
