Speaking shortly after joining the club Maxwell explained how excited he is to be linking up with his former teammate.

He said: “He’s a great lad, a fantastic lad. I’d say he’s one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met in football. He’s a fantastic talent as well, so to play alongside him again, like I did with Wales, will be brilliant. He’ll add so much to the team going forward, he’s a fantastic creative player that can changes games on his own.”

Maxwell said a togetherness of the squad would be important as the Addicks target promotion. He said: “I find it’s easy to get on with anyone in a dressing room. Everyone is here to win and be successful. A tight group and a strong togetherness is what gets teams up and makes team successful.”
