Joining Harry Kane, Steph Houghton, Harry Maguire, Phil Foden, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Raheem Sterling, Chambers has become the latest footballer to throw his cash behind the GPS tracking company with all ambassadors expected to feature in an upcoming TV ad which will debut this week.

“This technology is now an essential part of the professional game. It allows us to talk in facts in the assessment of our performance, with both club and country,” said England captain Kane.

“I love the idea of young footballers being able to do the same as they work to make it in the game. STATSports’ technology at all levels is only going to grow and I’m looking forward to being part of that.”

STATSports co-founder and COO, Sean O’Connor, added: “We’re really excited to welcome such an outstanding group of elite players into the STATSports family. We believe what we are doing is at the cutting edge and to have the interest we have from the top of the game proves that.

“Their knowledge of the game and levels of performance will help us to develop our systems and continue to push the limits on technology helping players and teams exceed expectations.”

Just a few months ago, it was reported that Hector Bellerin had invested in a healthy drink company. 

The Arsenal full-back, who was spotted on holiday with strapping around his knee, was one of a number of investors who have put money into MOJU, a provider of healthy drinks.
