Young reveals Dowie role in new contract

Charlton captain Luke Young has signed a new four-year contract just 24 hours after striker Darren Bent put pen to paper on his own long-term deal.

Young had signalled his intention to quit The Valley early last month after failing to agree a new deal with the club.

But the England international's proposed move to West Ham hit the rocks - and a stirring speech from new Charlton manager Iain Dowie persuaded him to stay on board.

Young, 27, has now signed an improved four-year contract which ties him to Charlton until 2010.

He said: 'After listening to what the manager has had to say and the direction he wants to take the club, it feels like a place where you want to work.

'The chat I had with the manager played a massive part in it all. The gaffer has big ambitions for the club and he wants things done properly.

'There is a real sense of togetherness here and it's that I want to be a part of.

'I can't speak highly enough of how myself and everybody else have been impressed with the first couple of weeks of training.

'It's been bright and forward-thinking and it feels as though everything is moving in the right direction.'

Young's signature ends a productive few days for Dowie, who has signed Dutch striker Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink from Middlesbrough and midfielder Simon Walton from Leeds.

'The signing of Hasselbaink speaks for itself,' added Young.

'His record is first class and one that stands up alongside the best strikers out there. I'm sure Jimmy's presence will bring on Darren Bent's game as well.'

Charlton chairman Richard Murray believes Bent and Hasselbaink will have the rest of the Barclays Premiership 'quaking in their boots'.

Bent, who was the club's leading scorer last season with 22 goals, ended speculation over a possible move to Liverpool, Newcastle or Tottenham by signing his new four-year deal.

'One or two cynics thought that with Jimmy coming in Darren might be going out but that was never the case,' said Murray.

'I think Darren's contract is the most important signing we're going to make this summer. We want them to learn from each other.

'We could have an England striker and a Dutch international up front - it's a very exciting time.

'Whenever you look at other teams you're playing against you tend to look at the strikers and think about whether they could do us some damage. I hope we've got a few clubs quaking in their boots.'

USA international defender Cory Gibbs completed his move to Charlton today after being granted a work permit.

Murray wants to further strengthen the Addicks squad with the addition of at least three more experienced campaigners.

'Ideally we'd like to get another five players of which at least three will be fairly senior players,' he said.

'We're working very hard on it. I know the season is still two or three weeks away but we would like to get them in as soon as possible so they can start training with the other players.'
