Nick Pope: Extends his contract at Charlton

The 21-year-old, who joined the Addicks from Bury Town in 2011, made his debut as a substitute in the final game of last season.

"Good, young British goalkeepers are few and far between," Charlton boss Chris Powell told the club's official website.

"We feel we've got one who will develop into a very good goalkeeper, who will have a good career in the game.

"It's pleasing that he's agreed to sign the new contract and that he sees his immediate future here.

"Goalkeepers mature late in their careers but he's already showing signs that we've got a real talent on our hands.

"It's pleasing that for the next three years he sees his future with us."

Pope, who has had loan spells with Welling and Cambridge United since moving to The Valley, added: "It's a big club so to have a long-term future secure, for me, as a player developing, it's something you look for.

"It's about just concentrating on my work now and continuing my progression."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
