Calum Chambers

Arsenal loanee Calum Chambers clinches Fulham award

Fulham have this afternoon announced that Calum Chambers has been named as the club’s Player of the Season.

Cottagers’ stint

Versatile 24-year-old Chambers made the move to Craven Cottage last summer on a season-long loan from Arsenal.

Having previously been deployed as either a full-back or central-defender during his time with both Southampton and the Gunners, though, Chambers was soon handed a new role with Fulham.

Under the guidance of Slavisa Jokanovic, and then Claudio Ranieri, the 3-time capped English international lined out in a defensive midfield berth, in a bid to provide protection to the Cottagers’ back-4.

And, in spite of Fulham’s widespread struggles over the course of the campaign, Chambers nevertheless went on to impress in his new role.

A play-it-simple composure when in possession, coupled with a fine reading of the game and tenacity when out of it, saw the Arsenal loanee emerge as a standout figure, and something of a fan-favourite at Craven Cottage.

Chambers’ accolade

And, as per the aforementioned announcement on the part of the Championship-bound outfit this afternoon, Chambers has been rewarded for his stellar campaign, with Fulham’s Player of the Season award:

Chambers is now set to return to Arsenal this summer, though it remains to be seen whether he fits into the long-term plans of Gunners’ boss Unai Emery moving forward.
