Charlton completed the season-long loan signing of Declan Rudd from Norwich City on Tuesday, August 2nd 2016.

The 25-year-old stopper, who has racked up over 100 professional appearances, played 11 times in the Premier League last season and became Manager Russell Slade’s fifth signing of the summer.  

Born in Diss, Norfolk, Rudd began his career with Norwich and signed his first professional contract in the summer of 2008.

The following season he played a key role in their academy’s run in the FA Youth Cup – saving three penalties in their fifth-round victory against Everton – with his first-team debut coming in 2009.

Rudd, capped by England at U16, U17, U19, U20 and U21 level, made his full Premier League bow against West Bromwich Albion in September 2011 – where he also saved a penalty - and he then embarked on two separate loan stints at Preston North End.

While with the Lilywhites, he played 46 matches as they reached the League One play-offs in 2013/14 and, last-term, he made a number of first-team appearances in the top flight with parent club Norwich.
