Bowyer guided the Addicks to promotion from Sky Bet League One last season via the play-offs but he appeared unhappy at only being offered a one-year contract extension, with his initial deal due to end on June 30.

He has had a swift change of heart, however, and will continue to lead the side in the Championship next season.

“We went on a real journey last season. The club came together – the players, the staff, the fans and we achieved something special,” he told the club’s official website.

“The journey hasn’t finished yet and I’m delighted this has all been agreed.

“This has been a long process and I never wanted to leave, I love this club. I’d like to thank the owner for giving me the initial opportunity and now for continuing to believe in me.

“We have a fantastic fan base here and my focus continues to be getting our squad in the best possible shape for the Championship next season.”
