WELSH INTERNATIONAL GOALKEEPER Danny Ward has joined Leicester City on a four-year deal from Premier League rivals Liverpool in a deal reportedly worth €14 million.

Coach Claude Puel already has Denmark’s Kasper Schmeichel as his first choice ‘keeper but the 25-year-old Ward adds back-up.

“Danny joining the group will give us even more competition in the squad, which is crucial for us ahead of what will be another very competitive Premier League campaign,” Puel explained.

Ward, who helped Huddersfield to promotion in 2017, was upbeat on the move.

“I’ve come here to develop my all-round game and hopefully help deliver some more success,” he said.

Liverpool on Thursday signed Brazil goalkeeper Alisson from Roma in a world record deal valued at €72.5 million by the Italian club.
