Charlton have confirmed the loan signing of Chris Maxwell from Preston North End until the end of the season.

The shot-stopper arrives at The Valley having spent two seasons at Deepdale following his transfer from Fleetwood Town.

The 28-year-old Welsh-born Maxwell revealed that he had no hesitation in signing the loan deal when interest from Charlton surfaced.

"It was a no-brainer for me," said Maxwell.

"I want to be part of something successful and looking at the group that is here, the manager, the club and how ambitious they are, the infrastructure, it’s a recipe for success and it’s a recipe for success that I want to be a part of."

Second Signing

Maxwell is Bowyer's second signing this month following Jonny Williams arrival, and goes someway to fill the void vacated by Jed Steer who was recalled to Aston Villa earlier this month.

"He’s got good distribution, he’s a good, all-around goalie, so I think he’s going to be very good for us," said Bowyer.

"We’ve had some great reports back from people and obviously seen him play for ourselves.

"He’s a very good goalie."

More To Come

Bowyer also revealed that the club are still working on further signings as they push for promotion.

“Will there be more coming in? Yeah, there will be.

"The way the injury situation is at the moment we need a bit of help. With players coming back from injury, we need everybody fit, as much as we can, so we can have a good run.”

"We’ve been working hard all the time, in the build-up to January 1st, we’ve been looking at players, we’ve been looking at left backs. That isn’t going to stop. We’re going to keep doing that to bring the right people in."

The goalkeeper began his career with Wrexham before moving to Fleetwood where he made over 120 appearances.

His last outing between the sticks for Preston was in November, a game that saw him pick up two yellow cards.
