The 18-year-old, who is a product of the club's three-year scholarship programme, has only just recently returned from a trip to the USA.
Atieno has tried not to think about landing a deal and is now looking forward to playing under manager Paul Merson (pictured).
"I'm looking forward to being part of the first team squad and continuing to develop and improve as a player," Atieno said to the club's official website.
"When somebody like Paul Merson has faith in you, it's a massive boost.
"I have worked hard to get this far but I realise that I must continue to concentrate on my football.
"I haven't really been thinking about contracts to be honest, I've just been making sure that my game is right and that I take on board the advice that I have been given."
