The 22-year-old joined Arsenal from league rivals Southampton in 2014 and has made 60 appearances for Arsene Wenger’s team. Chambers spent last season on loan at Middlesbrough, who were relegated to the Championship.

“Proud to sign a new contract with Arsenal. I know I’m still a young player and I want to have my best years for this football club. I want to win as many trophies with Arsenal as possible,” Chambers said on his verified Twitter account.

Chambers earned three senior England caps in 2014 and has also represented his nation at under-21 level, helping the team win the Toulon Tournament in 2016.
