Huddersfield Town are interested in signing Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward on loan next season, but there is still work to be done on a deal.

According to reports on Tuesday in the Huddserfield Examiner, the Championship club are working hard to finalise an agreement for the 22-year-old.

Ward returned to Liverpool from an impressive loan at Aberdeen at the start of the year, where he had kept 13 clean-sheets in 29 matches.

The Welshman immediately took Adam Bogdan’s place as back-up to Simon Mignolet, following some dreadful performances from the Hungarian.

He has since made two appearances for the Reds, in the 2-1 win at Bournemouth last month and the 3-1 defeat away to Swansea City on Sunday.

Despite Liverpool performing woefully in south Wales, Ward did himself proud between the sticks, making a number of important saves.

The 22-year-old is likely to find first-team football very hard to come by next season, however, as Klopp looks to bring in a more experienced ‘keeper to rival Mignolet.

It makes sense for Ward to once again leave Anfield for pastures new, in order to continue his growth as a player.

He would be an excellent acquisition for Huddersfield – who are of course managed by Klopp’s friend David Wagner. The Yorkshire side’s current first-choice ‘keeper Jed Steer is set to return to Aston Villa this summer, while Joe Murphy is also a long-term injury absentee.

Wagner’s link to Klopp is likely to see Huddersfield linked with plenty of young Liverpool players.

Ward moved to Liverpool for £100,000 from Wrexham in January 2012, and spent part of last year on loan at Morecambe.

He made his debut for Wales in a friendly against Northern Ireland in March, and should be a part of the squad that travels to France for this summer’s Euro 2016 tournament.
