Former Blackpool, Preston North End and Wrexham goalkeeper Chris Maxwell 'undergoing a medical' at Huddersfield Town

Former Blackpool goalkeeper Chris Maxwell is reportedly undergoing a medical at Huddersfield Town.

The 32-year-old left the Tangerines following the conclusion of the 2022/23 campaign, after the expiry of his contract. West Yorkshire may be the stopper’s new home, with Football Insider reporting he is undergoing a medical at Huddersfield.

Neil Warnock does not have a wealth of experience at his disposal between the sticks, with Lee Nicholls the only goalkeeper on the books who is over the age of 22.

If a deal was to be struck for Maxwell, he would add plenty of second tier know-how to the squad. The Wrexham academy graduate has been a first-choice goalkeeper in the Championship for both Preston North End and Blackpool, making a total of 114 appearances for the latter in all competitions before departing.

Reinforcements may be of even more importance at the John Smith’s Stadium if Peterborough United-linked Nicholas Bilokapic leaves on loan.
