Arsenal have confirmed that Calum Chambers has signed “a new long-term contract” with the club.

The English defender joined the north London club from Southampton back in the summer of 2014 and has since participated over 80 outings for the Gunners in all competitions.

The 23-year-old full-back had been linked with a move away from Emirates this summer transfer window, but has now committed his future to Arsenal by agreeing a long-term deal.

“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,” newly appointer boss Unai Emery told the club’s official website.

Calum Chambers, who made 12 Premier League appearances last term, spent the 2016-17 campaign on loan at Middlesbrough.

Now Arsenal have to concentrate on extending Aaron Ramsey’s contract which will expire in the next summer, and the Gunners face the same situation they had with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

At one point, the club’s hierarchy was considering to cash in on the Wales international, but now it seems that they have changed their mind are working on securing his services for next seasons.
