Rejoice! Shelvey commits to Addicks

Great news! Jonjo Shelvey has wasted no time in signing his first professional contract with Charlton today on his 17th birthday. This is a huge boost for the club for next season, especially when the vultures were circulating and it ties him to the club potentially until the 2011-12 season.

Credit to Jonjo too, he's obviously had a tough decision to make in delaying the satisfaction of potentially more money now, but I believe his decision will be vindicated and he will see him playing top flight football sooner rather than later.

It's great news and should give the team a boost too, knowing a young man believes he can develop further with us, and them.
