"It's important to get your players, especially young players that have made an impression, tied down to the club and he's an academy product that has blossomed in the side and has gone from strength to strength.

"It's always important and it's a good sign that we've been able to do it and I'm really pleased for Chris because now he can fully concentrate on his football."

The 22-year-old has played 114 times in the league for Charlton.
