Blues snap up young Kidderminster Harriers midfielder

The highly-rated 18-year-old has been signed for a fee of £75,000 and has penned a three-and-half year contract.

He will initially be under the auspices of the Blues Development Squad.

As part of the deal Maxwell is immediately being loaned back to the National League side.

Maxwell, who is a tall and athletic ball-playing central midfielder came through the youth ranks at Aggborough and broke into their first team side last season where he made eight appearances.

This season has seen him become a regular in their starting line-up, where he has racked up a further 22 appearances for the struggling non-league side.
