- The 22-year-old took to Twitter to confirm the contract extension
Arsenal defender Calum Chambers has signed a two-year contract extension at Arsenal, keeping him at the club until 2021.
The 22-year-old centre-back who spent the whole of last season on loan at Middlesbrough - has made 60 appearances for the Gunners since joining from Southampton in the summer of 2014.
He's played just once this season though, in the 1-0 victory over Doncaster Rovers in the third round of the Carabao Cup, but he is believed to have impressed Arsene Wenger since returning to the club in the summer.
The North London club took to Twitter to confirm the contract extension of Chambers by showing one of the classy goals scored by the 22-year-old.
Chambers - who has three senior England caps - could be needed in the coming weeks after Gunners centre-back Shkodran Mustafi sustained a hamstring injury on international duty with Germany.
The centre-back played 24 times for Boro in the Premier League last season, but was unable to save the Teessiders from relegation.
Chambers took to Twitter after the deal, writing: "Proud to sign a new contract with @arsenal. I know I'm still a young player and I want to have my best years players for this football club.

"I want to win as many trophies with Arsenal as possible. I'm going to repay the fans for the faith they've shown in me. Can't wait to get going again."
Arsenal will face in-form Watford at the Vicarage Road Stadium and Chambers is expected to be in the starting lineup following injury to Mustafi.
