The Blues under-23s midfielder has been integral part of their Premier League 2 title charge.
And his form has been rewarded with a new deal.
Everton will look into sending the Wirral-born player on loan next season but his focus is on the next two games and securing the championship.
鈥淚鈥檓 delighted to sign the new deal,?Charsley said.
鈥淚鈥檝e worked hard this season so it is nice to get a reward at the end of it.
鈥淚鈥檝e worked hard every year, tried to get better every season and with the help of all the coaches here, I feel like I have done that. It has been a good run so far and now I want to keep it going.
鈥淭he goal now is to win the [Premier League 2] league title. We are just taking it one step at a time now and it is a big game against Chelsea next.
鈥淟ooking ahead, the aim for me is to impress the first-team staff in pre-season. I want to show my best, work hard every day and we will see where that takes me.
鈥淭he fact the manager gives chances to young players encourages us all. It gives everyone a boost and makes us work harder because you want to be the next one that gets picked.?/p>
