Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward has reportedly agreed a new five-year contract before joining Huddersfield on a season-long loan deal.
The Liverpool Echo report that the Wales stopper will join up with the Championship club after putting pen to paper at Anfield.
The new deal comes as reward for the 23-year-old’s progress last season, which culminated in an appearance for Wales in their European Championship opener against Slovakia.
Ward impressed during a loan spell at Aberdeen before returning to Liverpool in January, when he replaced Adam Bogdan as Simon Mignolet’s deputy. Jurgen Klopp handed the Wrexham-born stopper his first Premier League start in the win at Bournemouth in April before featuring again in the 3-1 defeat at Swansea in May.
Klopp has recruited Loris Karius from Mainz this summer, meaning Ward’s opportunities would be more limited at Anfield during the upcoming season.
Ward will link up with Huddersfield, who are managed by David Wagner, who was part of Klopp’s backroom team at Borussia Dortmund.
