CHARLTON Athletic will continue talks with Thierry Small after triggering a one-year extension to his contract.

The club confirmed that they had taken up the option before the deadline of May 15.

Small, 19, played fourteen times under boss Nathan Jones, scoring in the 3-3 draw at Bolton Wanderers, after joining from St Mirren in the winter transfer window.

Small is currently off on his summer holidays and Charlton will aim to convince him to sign a longer deal after he returns.

Charlton technical director Andy Scott said on the club’s website: “We had to trigger the one-year extension by May 15 which is what we’ve done and we’re pleased that Thierry will be with us next season. 

“He’s done really well since he joined us. We’ve made him a long-term contract offer, as we feel he has a lot of ability and potential. He can learn and develop under the guidance of Nathan Jones and our staff and contribute to the club next season and as we progress.

“We will continue negotiations with Thierry and his agent when he returns from his break.”

Meanwhile, Charlton have confirmed they will kick off pre-season with a trip to Princes Park to play Dartford on Saturday, July 6 at 3pm.
