CONFIRMED: Danny Ward completes permanent move to Leicester City

Danny Ward's only first-team start last term was in a Carabao Cup tie at Leicester

The 25-year-old Wales worldwide last featured for Liverpool in an EFL Cup tie against new side Leicester in September 2017.

However, despite making four appearances for his country Wales, Ward featured in only three competitive games for Liverpool throughout his career at Anfield.

Ward is reportedly joining the Foxes as back-up to Denmark global Kasper Schmeichel - although their own title-winning stopper has been linked with Chelsea and Roma, following his efforts in the Premier League and this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation. And the former Wrexham youngster is eager to get started with the blue of Leicester next season, stating: "I've come here to develop my all-round game and hopefully help deliver some more success".

If the definition of "forward" extends to wingers, Jack Harrison, signed from New York City FC in January before going on loan to Middlesbrough, could be another candidate for a move to Ewood Park.

Boasting vast experience at global level, after starring for Colombia in the previous two World Cups, David Ospina also possesses Premier League and European experience - all of which would encourage Leicester to make a move.




"I'm very happy to welcome Danny to Leicester City", Puel said.

The 25-year-old has, however, enjoyed successful spells out on loan at Aberdeen and Huddersfield Town, where he helped The Terriers achieve promotion to the Premier League.

The goalkeeper made crucial saves during Huddersfield's penalty shootout victory over Sheffield Wednesday in the play-off semi-final and repeated his heroics in the spot-kick win over Reading in the final at Wembley.

It was the first pre-season friendly this year where Jurgen Klopp hadn't released two line-ups: one for each half.
