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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
