    Calum Chambers signs for Arsenal

    Calum Chambers has joined Arsenal from Southampton on a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee.

    The 19-year-old made his Premier League debut for the Saints on the opening day of the 2013/14 campaign, going on to feature 22 times in the competition last term.

    Chambers joined the Southampton academy aged seven, breaking into the club’s first team squad at the beginning of 2012/13.

    Tall and athletic, the versatile youngster started his career in midfield, but established himself at right back last season and can also play in the centre of defence. He is currently captain of England Under-19s.

    Arsène Wenger said: "We are very pleased that Calum has agreed to join us. The way he adapted to the Premier League last season with Southampton at a young age shows that he has tremendous quality. He has a lot of the attributes that we look for in a young player and I am sure that he will do well with us.”

    Chambers said: "I am so happy to be signing for Arsenal. They are a team I have much admired for their playing style, and a team who have been one of the top sides in Europe for many years. I'm looking forward to joining up with my new team-mates today and beginning preparation for the season ahead.

    "I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone at Southampton FC for everything they have done for me and for making this move possible."

    It is expected that Chambers will make his first Arsenal appearance at the Emirates Cup 2014, which takes place at Emirates Stadium on August 2 and 3.

    Chambers’ Arsenal squad number will be revealed soon through Arsenal’s official Instagram account.

    Everyone at Arsenal would like to welcome Calum to the club.

    This window feels so weird. None of that feeling of disappointment at this stage. Its such a varied bunch of signings, and this one has really surprised me. I literally have no idea whats in wengers mind in terms of who plays and where, but i am happy with the personnel we have with which to do it.

    Welcome to Arsenal, hope he gets some good game time this year, even with Debuchy already being here.

    Finally some real young talent in our back four.

    Great signing. Him + CB if TV5 leaves, give us amazing depth.

    When Wenger spends on young players you know you're in for a fun ride as they're hits 9 times out of 10.

    Great signing, but hopefully we bring another one in for Verms.

    What a fantastic transfer window so far, yet with each signing, I'm getting greedier for another one. :D

    Is Denilson the one out of ten in your equation?

    Welcome to the Arsenal Calum! Very interesting that AW spent more on Chambers than Debuchy. Is he our right back of the future? Or is he going to play CB? Should be very interesting indeed.

    This is easily the most bizarre summer I've ever experienced as an Arsenal fan :lol:

    For once, we're addressing weaknesses/losses across the squad and doing it before we're fully into pre-season.

    If you'd asked me whether I saw this coming, ever, I'd have laughed in your face.

    At best I thought we'd make 3 signings, many of those being replacements/downgrades on our losses but so far it's been rather the opposite. 2 additions, 2 replacements and all quality for decent prices.

    No, Jeffers, my equation only counts guys who cost over 5M.

    Young guys who cost less than that come into the 'punt' territory.

    Reminds me of a few Highbury windows where Wenger splashed out a few times.

    Keep it going, let's sign a striker too, come on Wengaaaa.

    Hope he really proves that he is the ultimate utility man. If he does, Wenger will be in tears, he finally found what he was looking for all these years.

    Great to see that he isn't going to under direct pressure because of Debuchy. Great signing!

    Now DM, CB and winger/striker left. Can't believe Wenger will fill all the gaps in the squad within one transfer window. Proves that he was really being held back by the Emirates move.

    Is this our quickest, most under the rader signing of all time?
