Charlton have signed goalkeeper Chris Maxwell on loan from Preston until the end of the season, the clubs confirmed on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old becomes the Addicks' second signing of the January transfer window, following the arrival of Jonny Williams from Crystal Palace last week.
After securing the signing of Maxwell, manager Lee Bowyer said: "He's a very good goalie. We've had 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."
Maxwell said choosing to move to the Sky League One side was an easy decision, saying: "When I found out that Charlton were interested in me, it was a no-brainer.
"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."
Maxwell has made 83 appearances during his time at Preston following his move from Fleetwood in 2016.
He began his career at Wrexham and has been called up to the Wales squad on several occasions, but is yet to make his international debut.
