Arsenal defender Calum Chambers has signed a new two-year contract with the club.

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.

There was some uncertainty over his future earlier this year. The likes of Crystal Palace and Southampton were said to be eyeing up a move.

 

However, he stayed at Arsenal over the summer and has now earned a new contract with the club.

Chambers spent last season on loan to Middlesbrough in the Premier League. Despite their eventual relegation, he often stood out at the heart of the defence.

Middlesbrough had one of the best defensive records in the bottom half, with Chambers playing a big part in that.

He has made 60 appearances for Arsenal at the time of writing.
