Chris Maxwell: Has signed a new Preston deal

Preston have announced goalkeeper Chris Maxwell has signed a new contract running until the end of the 2019-20 season.

The 26-year-old joined the Lilywhites from Lancashire rivals Fleetwood on an initial three-year deal in the summer.

He forced his way into Simon Grayson’s side in September, and his performances since have earned him this 12-month extension.

Maxwell told the club’s official website: “It gives me an opportunity to help progress Preston and hopefully progress myself in the process.

“When I first came here I said I wanted to make the number-one shirt my own, I wanted to play week in, week out for Preston and at the moment I’m doing that.”

The Welshman has made 29 appearances in all competitions and has been on the losing side only five times since joining on a free transfer in June.
