Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward is expected to spend next season at Huddersfield Town, reports the Examiner.
The Welshman has started two games under Jurgen Klopp so far, and been praised for his outings against Bournemouth and Swansea – despite conceding four goals in the process.
Huddersfield though are managed by David Wagner, a close friend of Klopp who worked under him at Borussia Dortmund, and the article suggests that this relationship has smoothed a deal.
Huddersfield play in the Championship, so it might be just the right level for Ward to hone his ability. At 22-years-old, he has years to establish himself as a Premier League no.1, and it might be best for him to play guaranteed first-team football at the moment.
Ward shone at Aberdeen earlier in the campaign, but with Adam Bogdan proving such a useless backup, Klopp decided to recall him.
This news perhaps suggests Klopp will be signing better competition for Simon Mignolet’s no.1 jersey – as we’ll need another stopper if Ward departs.
Mignolet has come under intense scrutiny this season, and despite signing a new five year contract, rumours in the Express (among other publications) claim Timo Horn is a possible summer signing.
