The loan move to Huddersfield makes ideal sense, as Ward continues to mature as a player.

According to James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo, among others, Ward will commit his long-term future to the club.

Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward has reportedly agreed a new five-year contract before joining Huddersfield on a season-long loan deal.

The Welsh global, who has spent the last month in France at the European Championships, has agreed a new five-year deal with the Premier League side and the first season will see him join the Terriers. "Celtic chief Brendan Rodgers also made a surprise inquiry".

The 23-year-old, who spent the first half of 2015-16 at Aberdeen before being recalled by Klopp in January, ousted Adam Bogdan as Simon Mignolet's deputy.

Huddersfield are allowing Ward to take a longer break from football due to Wales' successful EURO 16 campaign, reaching the semi-finals of the tournament, losing to eventual winners Portugal.He will join the club's preseason tour to Austria, ahead of their opening league fixture against Brentford on August 6th.

Earlier this summer, Liverpool signed goalkeeper Loris Karius from Mainz in a move that pushed backup shot stopper Danny Ward further down the pecking order at Anfield.

Injury to first-choice goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey saw Ward thrown into the team for their opener with Slovakia-just his third global cap.
