He said: "I'm delighted to be staying. It's an exciting time for the club and I can't wait to get going. I believe it is going to be a great season."

Director of Recruiting, Steve Gallen, said: “I’m pleased we’re keeping Jake with us. All the Charlton fans know what a good player he is and he’s a great character to have around the club too.
