Fleetwood Town goalkeeper Chris Maxwell has revealed he is leaving his current club in the summer amid links with Huddersfield Town.

David Wagner has made no secret of the necessity to recruit two new stoppers, with Jed Steer returning to Aston Villa after the end of his loan, Joe Murphy out until October with a shoulder problem and Lloyd Allinson released.

Town are interested in completing a season-long loan switch for Liverpool's Danny Ward.

And Chris Maxwell is another name on the list of stoppers linked with the vacancy.

Preston North End have also been named as potential suitors for the 25-year-old, who is out of contract at Highbury.

Fleetwood wanted to keep hold of their no1, but the man himself has moved to end speculation by explaining he is moving on - although he is yet to announce the team he will be playing for next season.

Maxwell released a statement on twitter, which read: “The season has ended thankfully with the much needed win over Crewe (on Sunday) and our survival in League One.

“It is however the end of my time with Fleetwood Town.

“It has been a fantastic four years full of brilliant memories but other football opportunities have come along that I can’t turn down.

“So I want to thank you all ‘the Cod Army’ for your personal support, encouragement and passion for the team.

“It has not been easy over the last few months but you kept us going right to the end home and away.

“There is more to come in the Fleetwood story and I will definitely be watching.

“I wish you all the very best of luck.”
