Calum Chambers joins Fulham on loan

Calum Chambers

Calum Chambers has joined Premier League newcomers Fulham on a season-long loan.

The 23-year-old signed a new contract with us last month, having made 82 appearances since joining us from Southampton in summer 2014. 

He enjoyed a season-long loan at Middlesbrough in 2016/17, making 24 Premier League appearances. He is an England international with three caps.
Unai Emery said: “Calum is a talented defender who has a bright future. We all believe this loan at Fulham will be an important part of his development and wish him a successful season.”
The loan is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.


Three academy players sign pro contracts

Jordan McEneff, Tobi Omole and Harry Clarke agree their first deals with us

Academy graduates Harry Clarke, Jordan McEneff, and Tobi Omole have signed their first professional contracts.

Harry joined us two years ago from Ipswich Town. Since his arrival, the 17-year-old has featured prominently for our under-18s and he has also made the bench at under-23 level. Initially a midfielder, Harry has made the switch to become a solid defender.

Jordan signed for us at the age of 17. The Irish youth international picked up an injury at the start of last season but has impressed in his seven appearances as an attacking midfielder for our under-18s this year.

Tobi joined us in 2016 after being spotted while playing for Thamesmead Town. The versatile defender has also adapted his position, moving from midfield to centre back.

We would like to congratulate Harry, Jordan and Tobi on their new contracts and wish them well as they continue their development with us.
