Charlton Athletic have confirmed the loan capture of Chris Maxwell from Preston North End.
The 28-year-old goalkeeper’s arrival could see Dillon Phillips head out on loan.
The Addicks are keen to secure Phillips on a new deal – his current terms run out in the summer.
Maxwell has fallen out of favour at Preston North End with Declan Rudd, another former loanee for the Addicks, preferred between the posts by North End boss Alex Neil.
Bowyer told Charlton’s official website said: “He’s a very good goalie. We’ve heard some great reports back from people and obviously seen him play for ourselves. He’s got good distribution, he’s a good all-around goalie, so I think he’s going to be very good for us.”
Head of recruitment Steve Gallen added: “I am pleased because Chris is a good goalkeeper. We’ve been lucky with some of the signings we’ve made, looking at Jonny and some of the signings in the summer, to get players with Championship experience and Championship quality.”
