Liverpool have confirmed their goalkeeper Danny Ward has joined Huddersfield Town on a season-long loan after committing his future to the Reds. He is reported to have signed a new five-year deal at Anfield on 11 July, Monday.

"Danny Ward has today signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool - and joined Huddersfield Town on a season's loan for 2016-17," a statement read on Liverpool's official website.

"Ward will now immediately join up with Championship outfit Huddersfield - where he will be managed by David Wagner, who worked with Jürgen Klopp during the boss' time at Borussia Dortmund."

The Wales international made his debut for the Merseyside club in their 2-1 Premier League win over AFC Bournemouth in April. He also started in Jürgen Klopp side's 3-1 defeat to Swansea City two weeks later.

The 23-year-old featured in Wales' opening match of Euro 2016 against Slovakia, which saw his side register a 2-1 win. He was preferred ahead of Crystal Palace's Wayne Hennessey as the latter was struggling with a back spasm.

At Huddersfield, Ward will play under Klopp's friend David Wagner. Klopp and Wagner worked together at Borussia Dortmund. Ward spent the first half of last season on loan at Aberdeen and was impressive for the Scottish outfit.

The Championship side manager went on to thank the Reds for allowing Ward to move to the John Smith stadium on a season-long loan.

"I've spoken before about using the loan market to bring special talent to the Club and Danny is another great example of this, following closely on from Aaron Mooy's arrival. That is why there was such strong competition to take Danny," Wagner told Huddersfield's official website.

"I would like to thank Liverpool FC for the help the staff at the Club have given us in allowing Danny to join us.

"Danny has had a very busy season that was extended by the part he played for Wales in Euro 2016, so he will be given some time off before he joins the squad when we depart for Austria towards the end of the month."
