Pearce told ‘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.’
