Arsenal defender Calum Chambers has signed for Aston Villa.
The 27-year old has signed a three and a half year contract at Villa Park and becomes Steven Gerrard’s third signing of the January window over Lucas Digne, and Philippe Coutinho.
Chambers was in the final six months of his current deal at the Emirates, and has left for an undisclosed nominal fee.
He joined Arsenal from Southampton in 2014, and went on to make 122 appearances in all competitions for them, although he struggled to hold down a regular first-team place during his time in North London and had loan spells with Middlesbrough and Fulham.
This season, he barely featured under Mikel Arteta, making just two appearances in the Premier League and two in the Carabao Cup, for a total of 375 minutes in all, although he did score with his first touch after coming on as a substitute against Leeds United in the latter competition.
