Sky Sports are reporting that Arsenal and Middlesbrough have agreed a season long loan deal for Calum Chambers.
The 21 year old has been tipped for a move away since the arrival of Rob Holding and the imminent capture of German international Shkodran Mustafi. Speaking at his press conference on Friday, Arsene Wenger admitted the young Englishman could leave, but insisted it was a move to help his development, and not one that would mean the end of his Arsenal career.

After a very positive start to his Arsenal career, Chambers has struggled to get into the side on a regular basis. He started just twice in the Premier League last season, and made just 9 starts from a total of 22 appearances.
He definitely needs first team football so let’s hope he gets that if and when the Boro move is completed.
