Charlton Athletic have signed goalkeeper Chris Maxwell on loan from Championship outfit Preston North End until the end of the season, it has been confirmed on the Addicks’ club website.
The 28-year-old made 76 league starts for Preston since arriving in 2016 having previously played for Wrexham and Fleetwood, making 124 appearances for the Cod Army in all competitions between 2012 and 2016.
So is Maxwell a good loan signing for Charlton?
“It’s a pretty solid loan deal and a more than adequate replacement for Jed Steer who was recalled by Aston Villa.
“Charlton are doing well in the league, and if you ask me, Chris Maxwell could be an even bigger success at the Valley than what their former loanee was.
“He has big gloves to fill and is thrown in at the deep end with the Addicks doing so well.
“But I think he could be a success at Charlton and could possibly aid in their promotion push.”
“It solves a problem position for the Addicks.
“They have been in need of an experienced goalkeeper since Jed Steer was recalled from his loan spell with Aston Villa.
“Maxwell is experienced in the Championship, and was unlucky not to have been starting more regularly for Preston this season.”
“This is a great signing.
“He was only just behind Declan Rudd in the pecking order at Preston, and is easily good enough to ply his trade in the Championship, so Charlton should see this is a real coup.”
