Leicester City Complete Danny Ward Transfer From Liverpool

Leicester City have signed Welsh goalkeeper Danny Ward from fellow Premier League side Liverpool.

The 25-year-old joins the Foxes after penning a four-year contract in a £12.5m deal.

Liverpool also included a 20% sell-on clause in the transfer.

Danny Ward featured for Liverpool on two occasions only since joining the club from Welsh side Wrexham in January 2012.

The 4-cap Welsh international was sent out on loan three times.

He had loan spells at Morecambe and Aberdeen before spending the 2016/17 season on loan at Huddersfield Town.

Danny Ward helped the Terriers secure a return to the top flight after 45 years (since 1972).

His departure from Liverpool became inevitable after the arrival of Brazilian shot stopper Alisson from Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma in a £66.8m deal pushed him down to fourth in the pecking order behind Simon Mignolet, Loris Karius and the new goalkeeper.
