Arsenal defender Calum Chambers has signed a new long-term contract despite being linked with a move to newly-promoted Premier League side Fulham.

Chambers, who joined in the summer of 2014 from Southampton for a fee rising to £16million, has had a turbulent career at the club over the past few years.

The 23-year-old spent the 2016/17 season at Middlesbrough and featured heavily as Boro got relegated back to the Championship.

Last season was an odd campaign for Chambers, whilst he made 24 appearances in all competitions, they mainly came in the cup competitions and when an injury occurred ahead of the league game.

One could’ve been lead to believe that the former Southampton man was set to become a casualty of the new Unai Emery era, but it seems the Spanish boss has Chambers fully in his plans.

“I’m delighted Calum has extended his stay with us. He played an important role last season and will be part of my plans this season,” Emery told the club’s official website.

As for the man himself, he spoke on his delight at having the full backing of the new manager and is looking to kick on this season.

Taking to his Instagram account, Chambers said: “Delighted to have signed a new deal at Arsenal! I want to give my very best to this great club. Thanks to the new manager for showing faith in me and I’m looking forward to the big season ahead! I promise to repay the fans back for the support they’ve given me!”
