Daniel Kanu signs long-term contract at Charlton Athletic – South London News

Charlton Athletic striker Daniel Kanu has signed a contract extension until the summer of 2027.

The 19-year-old’s previous terms were due to expire at the end of June.

Kanu, from Lambeth, won his first international cap for Sierra Leone in a World Cup qualifier against Egypt in November.

“I signed my first professional contract two years ago – around this time actually – and I’m just grateful to the academy and everyone else that’s been part of my journey to get me to where I am today,” said Kanu, left.

Addicks technical director Andy Scott added: “We’re delighted to tie Daniel down to a long-term contract because we want to keep our best young players at the football club.

“When he wasn’t in the side, he wanted to go out and play and he did very well at Southend. He’s come back and been a real plus for us in a difficult run of games.

“Daniel has made a huge impression this season – he’s shown he’s got the quality and he’s shown he can score goals.

“His attitude to working and improving is exceptional. We want to work with players like that. We believe that we can make him into a player that’s going to have a big, bright future at the club.”
