The versatile 19-year-old, who can play in midfield or defence, has made an immediate impact for Chris Powell's side this season and impressed in the 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest in midweek.

Powell believes the youngster, who first joined the Addicks as a 13-year-old before progressing through their Academy to the first-team, has a bright future ahead of him.

He told the club's official website: "Jordan has made an impact on everyone over the past few weeks and I'm really pleased that he sees his future with Charlton.

"Ever since I have been at the club he is a player I have known about, and known how talented he is, but his performances on our pre-season tour this summer told me he was ready to play a part with the first team.

"It is still very early in his career but he has good attributes and can also play in defence, even though we see him as a midfielder primarily.

"What I also really like about him is that he has the right attitude and a terrific temperament. Nothing seems to faze him and he has a real hunger to succeed."

Cousins added: "I'm delighted. Making my debut this year was a dream come true and now I've signed a new deal it can't get any better for me.

"Playing in the first team is what I've dreamed of doing all my life and I know there's still a long way to go but as of now I'm in a great place.

"It's been a hell of an experience stepping up from U21 level and being in and around the first team, but it's been an experience I've really enjoyed and I feel like I've grown as a person and as a player being in and around so many experienced pros."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
