The 23 year old joined the Gunners in 2014 after breaking into the scenes at Southampton, but since then he has been mostly on the fringes at North London. He was at his fringes at the North London club int he last couple of seasons, but he made some crucial and decent performances at the flag end of last season, which has convinced new head coach Unai Emery to make him stay at the club.

And the England defender is happy to stay which reverberated in his interview as he spoke to the Arsenal website.

“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,” he added.

The former Southampton centre back also cleared that Arsenal is the club where he wants to stay and he is happy that he has extended his deal.

Chambers was loaned out a couple of seasons ago at Middlesbrough and he was poised to join Leicester, but the new boss Unai Emery considers the 23 year old in his plans.

“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,” Emery told Arsenal’s official website.

The Chambers’ signing comes at the back of the arrival of Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund.
