Calum Chambers has signed a new two-year extension on his Arsenal contract which will see him stay at the club until 2021 (via Arsenal.com).
He’s become something of a forgotten man at Arsenal and as surprising as this news is, it could mark a turnaround for the player.
Calum Chambers has barely featured for the club this season but today, the club has announced that the defender has signed a new two-year extension on his Arsenal contract.
Chambers joined the Gunners from Southampton back in 2014 and initially excelled for the club in the Premier League.
He spent much of the first half of that debut season at centre-back but switched out to the right midway through the campaign and started struggling.

The defender then fell out of favour at the club and spent last season on loan at Premier League side Middlesbrough, making 26 appearances for the side.
He has since returned to Arsenal and despite barely featuring and being linked with a move away, has today signed a new contract. It’s unclear whether this will mark the beginning of increased playing time or simply a move from the club to secure the defender’s long-term value.
