Arsenal Announce New 2-Year Extension for Young Defender Calum Chambers

Arsenal Announce New 2-Year Extension for Young Defender Calum Chambers

The 22-year-old was linked with a move away from Arsenal in the summer but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger made a decision to keep him at the club and he has now been rewarded with a new deal.

"Everyone at Arsenal is looking forward to Calum's continued contribution to the club", Arsenal said in a statement.

Chambers spent last season on loan to Middlesbrough in the Premier League.

The Gunners have confirmed, via their official website, that Chambers has put pen to paper on a deal that will take him to 2021 with the club.

Crystal Palace also saw an offer worth approximately £16m rebuffed and apparently refused to meet the Gunners' steep £27m asking price before Arsene Wenger, according to the BBC, performed something of a U-turn and decided that he wanted the player to stay. I know I'm still a young player and I want to have my best years playing for this football club.

Initially he made a good start to life at the Emirates Stadium, playing 23 times in his first Premier League campaign at the club - one more appearance than he managed at Southampton the previous year. "Can't wait to get going again".

Arsenal fans will hope that this news is soon followed by other similar announcements, with the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez both in the final year of their current contracts.
