Arsenal star Calum Chambers has signed a new 2-years deal that will see him remain at Arsenal at least four more seasons until the summer of 2021.
The 22-year-old was loaned out to Middlesbrough last term, giving him a leading position in a defensive line.
Despite the team’s relegation, Chambers had a decent season in which he saw him progressed in the England U21’s following an increased number of matches.
His return to Arsenal has been delayed this campaign however, with his return from injury in the Carabao Cup match against Doncaster Rovers proving too soon.
The centre-half was substituted at half-time and is now hoping to return to action soon after about a month on the sidelines due to a hip problem.
His return could be perfectly timed with German Shkodran Mustafi sustaining a hamstring strain during last weekend’s international duty and Frenchman Laurent Koscielny unable to recover from his Achilles issue in time for the next Premier League fixture.
Together with young defender Rob Holding, Arsenal tactician Arsene Wenger now has two young English defenders that will undoubtedly become regulars in the side once the regular starters have moved on, starting with German Per Matersacker at the end of this season.
