Leicester have had a £12M bid for Ward accepted by Liverpool

Despite Simon Mignolet and Loris Karis producing average seasons for Liverpool this campaign just gone, Ward still failed to break into the first team with Jurgen Klopp’s side.

The closest the Welsh international got to playing for the club in the Premier League was a spot on the substitutes bench, with Ward only managing one first team appearance, with that coming in the League Cup.

The shot-stopper impressed massively during his loan spell at Huddersfield in the Champions two seasons ago, as his consistency between the sticks helping the Terriers secure their first ever promotion to the Premier League.

Getting £12M for a player that has only played one first team game for Liverpool this past season is fantastic business from the Reds, and is something that should let their fans know that they know what they’re doing going into a big season for the club.
