Arsenal and England winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has become the latest big-name sportsman to join the ranks at BT Sport.

The 19-year-old joins fellow footballer Gareth Bale and rugby legend Lawrence Dallaglio in signing up to appear on the new channel, which launches in August 2013.

'The Ox' - who has ten England caps to his name - will feature in TV adverts for BT Sport and appear as a regular studio guest. Oxlade-Chamberlain will also become a BT Ambassador for the next three years.

"As a young player, I hope I can bring some real insight into the Premier League, as part of the BT Sport team," he stated.

Simon Green, Head of BT Sport, said the firm was "thrilled" to sign a rising international star to its broadcast team.

"His hard work and dedication to improvement has already taken him to great heights and serves as an inspiration to young football fans that if you are good enough, you are old enough," he stated.

BT Sport has secured the rights to show 38 live games per season from the Barclays Premier League - including 18 of the top picks - from 2013-14.

The platform will also show top-tier matches from Serie A in Italy, Ligue 1 in France, Brasileiro in Brazil and Major League Soccer in the USA.
