Charlton Athletic have extended Richard Chin’s contract until the summer of 2024.
The 20-year-old has made 15 first-team appearances this season.
The League One club activated an option in Chin’s contract.
Addicks boss Dean Holden told the South London Press: “He is a good young player who came through their academy and has a lot of development in him.
“He can be a real asset to a manager, in terms of having a player who can play a few positions. I was probably there myself as a young player, you sometimes get put in one position and then changed to another one. It can be difficult to get your rhythm sometimes.
“He played a little bit when I first came in and he’s been performing well for the U23s. He’s just come back from a minor injury. He’s a player we’ll have a look at in pre-season and see exactly where he is at. He’ll come into the squad.
“He’s a really excellent trainer with a great attitude. He has a desire to maximise himself and puts all the hours in – he’s first in the training ground and last to leave. He is a great example.”
