Charlton teenager Joe Pigott has signed a new three-year contract with the Sky Bet Championship club.

The striker, 19, a product of the Addicks' youth academy, has put pen to paper on a deal to keep him at The Valley until 2016.

Pigott made his league debut in Saturday's 2-1 home victory over Leicester, and has been at the club since Under-15 level.

He told Charlton's official website: "To commit to the club was exactly what I want to do as a young player so I'm very happy.

"There are role models all around the club that have come through the academy to play for the first team. It's a great club to be at for any youngster.

"If you have the right mentality as a youngster you give yourself the best chance possible, and being at Charlton, you have that chance."

Maidstone-born Pigott scored 22 goals for the Addicks' development squad last season and manager Chris Powell was delighted to extend the youngster's deal.

"It's in our DNA here at Charlton to give our young players a chance," said Powell. "Joe has shown everyone what it takes to have that desire to move on from the academy and the Under-21s.

"The list is endless with regards to players that we've produced that have played for our first team and, as you can see with Joe, I'm not afraid to include them.

"Joe knows there is a long way to go, but what we've seen so far we feel there's a lot to like and a lot to come from him, and hopefully he'll be a player for our future."
