Arsenal defender Calum Chambers signs a contract extension

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers has signed a two-year contract extension to keep him at the North London club until 2021.

The development was announced on Wednesday ahead of the Gunners’ trip to Watford on Saturday in the Premier League.

The 22-year-old England international joined the Emirates Stadium in 2014 from Southampton FC and has since made 60 appearances for the club. Chambers spent last season on loan at Middlesbrough, who were relegated to the Championship.

"Proud to sign a new contract with Arsenal. I know I'm still a young player and I want to have my best years for this football club. I want to win as many trophies with Arsenal as possible," Chambers said on his verified Twitter account.

Summer reports had however suggested that the youngster was up for sale but the departure of Kieran Gibbs and Gabriel Paulista had manager Arsene Wenger retain him by the end of the July-August transfer window.

Chambers earned three senior England caps in 2014 and has also represented his nation at under-21 level, helping the team win the Toulon Tournament in 2016.
