Russell had two spells at Norwich before moving to Preston in 2010

Preston midfielder Darel Russell has signed an extension to his loan deal at Charlton to keep him at the Addicks until the end of the season.

The 31-year-old, who arrived at The Valley on a three-month deal in November , has made five appearances for the side, scoring once.

Russell told the club website: "I'm enjoying what I'm doing here.

"And when you start a focus in something you always want to be there to finish it."

The former Norwich man had made just four appearances for North End this season before heading to Charlton.

He added: "I just want to go and play week in, week out, and that's what I've known all through my career.

"It was a very disheartening time at Preston with the situation that I was in but I've come and been given the opportunity [at Charlton] to go out there and play in the last few games and I'm loving every minute of it."
