The central defender has penned fresh terms with the Gunners, and will continue his club career under Unai Emery

Calum Chambers has signed a new long-term contract at Arsenal, the club have confirmed.

Chambers moved to Emirates Stadium from Southampton in 2014, and has since made over 80 appearances for the Gunners.

Signed by Arsene Wenger, Chambers will now continue his career at the club under the management of new boss Unai Emery, who succeeded the Frenchman earlier this summer.

“I’m delighted Calum has extended his stay with us," Emery told the club's official website.

"He played an important role last season and will be part of my plans this season.”

The news comes off the back of the club's purchase of Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund, with Chambers set to play alongside the Greece international, instead of being replaced by him.

Chambers has won three senior England caps, and also spent the 2016-17 campaign on loan at Middlesbrough.

The defender saw his 2017-18 season disrupted by injury, however, and made just 12 Premier League appearances.
