Danny Ward excited by Leicester challenge after completing move from Liverpool

Share

New Leicester City signing Danny Ward has a message for the Club's supporters.

Sky Sports report that the Welsh goalkeeper is set to join the Foxes with rumours about Kasper Schmeichel possibly leaving the club to join Chelsea.

He was recalled to Liverpool in 2016 and soon underlined his potential with an impressive debut display in a 2-1 Premier League victory at Bournemouth in April of that year, followed by a further run out in a 3-1 win over Swansea City.

"Those Champions league nights are special".

- Schmeichel's comments in 2017 may hint at a move for European football.

This transfer window is set to get into full swing now the World Cup has finished as clubs look to refine their squads before the season begins in August.

Ward, who started for Liverpool at King Power Stadium in last season's Carabao Cup, has represented Wales at schoolboy, Under-17s, Under-19s, Under-21s and senior worldwide level and is now the third Welsh global in the squad along with King and George Thomas.

It joins the Spider-Punk suit and Iron Spider suit (inspired by Marvel Studios' The Avengers: Infinity War ) to round out the set. A custom Amazing Red 1TB PS4 Pro with the iconic white spider and matching red controller will be launching alongside the game.

Liverpool are still well-stocked with goalkeeping options despite Ward's departure, too.

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.

Liverpool have a 20% sell on fee inserted into the deal, while his former club will also receive part of the £12.5M fee.

Prior to the World Cup, Cho Hyun-Woo told ESPN that he dreams of playing in England and the performances of the South Korea goalkeeper in Russian Federation have increased the possibility of that becoming a reality.

19-year-old Irish prospect Caoimhin Kelleher served a gentle reminder to the public in Liverpool's friendly win against Blackburn this evening.

The newly-promoted Championship side already pulled off a coup this summer by signing highly-rated Jacob Davenport from City, and have held "positive talks" about signing an unnamed forward, it is reported.
