West Ham fans are disappointed after it appears the Hammers have failed to secure a loan deal for Arsenal right-back Calum Chambers.
The fans took to Twitter to register their thoughts after news that Middlesbrough look set to announce a deal for the player shortly.
Sky Sports broke the news that Middlesbrough had agreed a deal with the Gunners for the England Under-21 international on Monday afternoon.

Chambers has failed to impress for Arsenal in the latter stages of last season and in his sole appearance this season, when they lost 4-3 at home to Liverpool.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants to get Chambers more first-team football this season and it looks like he’ll find this at Middlesbrough now. West Ham fans aren’t happy – here are a selection of their tweets.
Boro are going in for Chambers, come on West Ham!!

Middlesbrough are doing some mad transfer business but you have to wonder why West Ham didn't go after Chambers

And apparently Boro are signing Chambers. Excellent move for him, needs to play everyweek but going to West Ham that are a shambles
