Charlton skipper Jason Pearce has signed a contract extension which will keep him at the club until at least 2021, the Addicks have announced.

The central defender has made 81 appearances for the club since arriving from Wigan in August, 2016.

Pearce told Charlton’s official website: ‘I wanted to get that stability with the club, I enjoy it here.

I love the club and it has been a good year and I feel like Charlton are on the up.

‘The club obviously had a bit of interest for me in the summer, but it didn’t change anything, I wanted to stay here.

‘I’m proud that the club have allowed me to extend my contract and hopefully I can repay that with some good performances on the pitch.

‘ Manager Lee Bowyer, who led the Addicks to promotion from League One last season, added: ‘Pearcey is our captain, he’s our leader on and off the pitch.

I always say you need experience in a team and his experience is so valuable.’
