Calum Chambers SIGNS For Aston Villa!

On Thursday evening, Aston Villa announced another addition to the squad as Calum Chambers joined from Arsenal on a three and a half year deal.

The twenty seven year old joins on a free transfer.


A great bit of business to replace the recently departed Axel Tuanzebe.


It was clear that Aston Villa needed a centre half after Tuanzebe's loan spell was cut short - they only had three senior centre backs in Tyrone Mings, Ezri Konsa and Kortney Hause.


Calum Chambers joining adds depth in that centre back role, but also offers depth in the right back and holding midfielder role as he has proven he can play there in his time at Arsenal.

Chambers has three England caps at senior level and a trip to Qatar at the end of the year will definitely be on his mind if he impresses at Aston Villa.

He has stated in his first interview that, "It's a massive club, they're in a great moment at this moment in time, it's a very exciting place to be and I think everyone can see that from the outside, things are definitely happening here and the club is moving in the right direction. For me it was a no brainer. It's a great club and it was the right thing to do."


What Next?

A holding midfielder will definitely be the next position Gerrard and co look to strengthen in. Names such as Bentancur, Kamara, Zakaria and Bissouma have propped up at various points this month, however with just a few days to go of the window, no holding midfielder has been signed.
