Aston Villa weren't able to shift defender Calum Chambers before the end of the transfer window.

The 29-year-old, who made three caps for England earlier in his career, will now have to wait until the end of the season to find a new home.

West Brom were interested in signing him before the 11pm deadline on Thursday. However, as per Express & Star reporter Lewis Cox on X, they weren't able to secure his signature.

Hull City also looked into the possibility of landing him. However, like the Baggies, the Tigers didn't get him in the end.

Their owner Acun Ilicali has said, as per a report by HullLive: "Actually, it's something that we talked about before but it didn't happen. I can say that this news is a little early news coming from some conversations (earlier in the day).

"There was an occasion like it could be possible, but the deal was not done. He's not going to be with us and I wish him the best for his football career."

Offloading Chambers would have been a good move by Aston Villa as it would have freed up some space and funds in their squad. Nevertheless, he provides some more competition and depth for them until the summer though.

He rose up through the Southampton ranks before he was snapped up as a youngster by Arsenal in 2014.

Chambers spent seven years at the Emirates Stadium before moving to Villa Park, some of which he spent on loan away from the Gunners at Fulham and Middlesbrough.

He has fallen out of favour at Aston Villa now and has played only three times this term.
