Chambers has been told he is free to leave before the transfer deadline after struggling to make an impact at the Emirates Stadium and Boro look to have won the race for his signature.

Stoke, West Brom and Bournemouth have also declared an interest in the former Southampton star, but it is newly promoted Middlesbrough who are leading the way.

Chambers is expected to move to the Riverside Stadium on a season-long loan deal, and reports claim a deal will be wrapped up well before Wednesday’s 11pm deadline, forcing Potters boss Mark Hughes to look elsewhere.
