Arsenal defender Calum Chambers has sealed a season-long loan switch to Premier League newcomers Fulham.
The 23-year-old is a graduate of the prestigious Southampton academy, and after impressing for the Saints previously, Chambers has gone on to make a total of 94 Premier League appearances so far in his career.
However, he’ll now look to add to that tally with Fulham in the upcoming campaign as Arsenal have confirmed that he’s joined the Cottagers, as seen in the tweet below.
Chambers is not the only young English defensive recruit Fulham have signed this summer, as they also officially announced the signing of Alfie Mawson last week.
Fulham fans would love to see Chambers once again strike a solid defensive partnership with Mawson having previously played together on the international stage at youth level.
Provided that they do so, it could give them an ideal base on which to build as they look to protect their top-flight status and avoid an immediate return to the Championship after defeating Aston Villa in last season’s playoff final.
Chambers has also now confirmed the move, and as per his tweet below, he’s evidently excited about the new challenge that awaits him at Craven Cottage.
