Ex Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Danny Ward is waiting to hear from Liverpool whether he’ll be allowed to return to the Terriers after his play-off heroics, according to the Daily Mail.
Danny Ward saved two penalties in the semi final against Sheffield Wednesday and saved one against Reading in the final to get Huddersfield to the Premier League last month.
He has also earned himself another call up to the Welsh national squad for a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Serbia.
The Liverpool goalkeeper has said he’d love to return to Huddersfield but does admit if Liverpool need him he will stay put. In an interview with Ward he said “Promotion has changed things for me” and mentioned that David Wagner has told him he wants a reunion.
Danny Ward made 46 appearances in all competitions last season conceding just 55 goals and keeping a massive 12 clean sheets.
“It’s a chance to go and play in the Premier League at a club where you know the place and they know what you’re about”. Ward then went on to add “It is kind of out of my hands at the minute. As it stands, I am going back to Liverpool for pre-season and have a bit of a competition with the two other boys (Mignolet and Karius).
“I’ve given him my thoughts as well. But at the end of the day, I’m not a Huddersfield Town player, I belong to Liverpool and no matter what I think or David thinks, Liverpool are my club and their needs must come first”.
He then added “Anything would be a loan deal”. This not just because Liverpool don’t want to lose him permanently but also because Ward has high ambitions of one day be Liverpool’s number one.
“It is different levels” he said. “The Championship is much more demanding; 46 games, Saturday-Tuesday, Saturday-Tuesday was really tough”. He also believes that he has no choice but to play in the Premier League if he’s serious about ever becoming Liverpool’s Number One.
‘That is a carrot, especially when you’re coming away with Wales and training with lads who are playing top-level. it does get frustrating, but you have to keep that hunger and keep going. It is something I definitely feel as though I need next season’.
