Charlton manager Lee Bowyer has signed a one-year contract extension after finally reaching agreement with the club.

The Sky Bet League One play-off winners announced on Monday they had failed to agree terms with the former Leeds and Newcastle midfielder but a deal has now been concluded.

The club said in a statement: "Charlton Athletic are delighted to confirm that Addicks' boss Lee Bowyer has agreed a contract extension with the club."

Charlton beat Sunderland at Wembley last month to secure promotion to the Championship.

Bowyer said: "We went on a real journey last season. The club came together - the players, the staff, the fans and we achieved something special. The journey hasn't finished yet and I'm delighted this has all been agreed.

"This has been a long process and I never wanted to leave, I love this club. I'd like to thank the owner for giving me the initial opportunity and now for continuing to believe in me." 

Republic of Ireland midfielder Josh Cullen was a major part of Charlton's successful campaign, impressing in that dramatic defeat of the Black Cats before bidding farewell to the club.

He's returned to West Ham where he hopes to make the breakthrough this coming season.
