Arsenal have confirmed that defender Calum Chambers has signed “a new long-term contract” with the club.
Calum Chambers joined Arsenal from Southampton in the summer of 2014, and has since made over 80 appearances for the London club in all competitions.
The 23-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium this summer, but has now committed his future to Arsenal by penning 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,” new Arsenal boss Unai Emery told the club’s official website.
Chambers spent the 2016-17 season on loan at Middlesbrough but could not help them avoid relegation back to the Sky Bet Championship.
Last summer he was heavily linked with a move to Premier League rivals Leicester but remained at Arsenal and played a large part in their run to the Europa League semi-finals under Arsene Wenger.
“I’m really proud, really pleased and excited for this season and what lies ahead,” he told Arsenal Player.
“I’ve really enjoyed it, it is a great club and there have been ups and downs but that is football, that is a career.
“I’ve met some great people here and I’m really excited about the future and I want to kick on and prove to everyone the player I can be.”
