The former Southampton man feels that he has made progress since swapping St Mary’s for the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal youngster Calum Chambers has stated that he is happy with how his first six months at the club has gone and feels that he has grown as a player.

The 20-year-old moved to North London for a considerable transfer fee in the summer and has started 14 Premier League games this term for Arsene Wenger’s men.

Chambers was quick to talk about just how much he has progressed since becoming a Gunner and admitted that he is keen to continue playing as much as possible.

“I think I’ve matured a lot,” he told the official Arsenal Magazine, reported on the club’s website.

“I’ve worked on my game, I’ve watched a lot of my performances back and I’ve gained a lot of experience both in playing in the Premier League and in Europe.

“I think I’ve added a lot to my game, which is good. I just want to keep working hard and keep learning from each match I play.

“I’ve played a lot and I’ve been happy with the first half of the season. I’m confident in my own ability and I hope the coaches and the fans are happy with my performances.

“Now I have to keep that going in the second half of the season - carry on enjoying my football and building on what I’ve done in my first six months here.”

Chambers’ versatility has been a key attribute in Wenger’s squad this season, with the defender operating at full-back, centre-half and in midfield during his time in North London.

The 20-year-old has also broken into the senior England set-up, winning three international caps for the Three Lions last year and now seemingly an important man for club and country.

Chambers was an unused substitute in Arsenal’s impressive 2-0 away win over Manchester City last weekend, but could feature in the side’s FA Cup clash at Brighton tomorrow.
