Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward could make a season-long loan move to Championship side Huddersfield Town in the summer, but work is still yet to be done, according to the Huddersfield Examiner.

Current Town goalkeeper Jed Steer is set to return to parent club Aston Villa after Saturday’s final league game against Brentford.

The Examiner states that Huddersfield are in the market for two new goalkeepers in the transfer window, as current substitute goalkeeper Joe Murphy is sidelined until October.

Ward has previously moved elsewhere temporarily, having just had a loan spell with Scottish side Aberdeen, where he played 29 times and kept 13 clean sheets.

The 22-year-old has also recently broken into the Liverpool first-team, making his second appearance in Sunday’s loss against Swansea City. His debut came in the 2-1 victory over Bournemouth last month.

Ward also has international honours, making his senior debut for Wales in their 1-1 draw with Northern Ireland towards the end of March this year. Previous to that, he made seven appearances for Wales’ under-21’s side.

The goalkeeper made the move to Merseyside from Wrexham in January 2012. Since his transfer, he has also had a loan spell at League Two side Morecambe and has been a regular feature for Liverpool’s youth sides.
