Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward could be the fourth signing of the summer for Huddersfield Town - with sources suggesting he is firmly on the radar for a season-long loan.

No deal is yet done, but the club are in the market for two new goalkeepers, while Jurgen Klopp brought the stopper back from his loan at Aberdeen early to have a closer look.

And it seems he could be ready for the more physical challenge of life in the Championship for a year under David Wagner, a manager that preaches from a similar philosophical text as the Anfield chief.

We asked Liverpool Echo journalist, Kristian Walsh, for the low-down on the 22-year-old stopper...

Is Ward good enough to have a long term future at Liverpool?

"He's still only 22 and Jurgen Klopp was pretty keen to bring him back to Anfield when he had the opportunity to do so.

"He was developing really well at Aberdeen and, by all accounts, was a big part of their push towards the Scottish title. He was getting everything you would want from a loan deal - playing time, experience playing in big games, performing in front of big crowds - but Klopp saw it fit to get him back to Melwood.

"In fairness, he did that with a number of Liverpool's Academy stars, with the likes of Tiago Ilori, Sheyi Ojo, Ryan Kent and Kevin Stewart.

"But after Adam Bogdan's horror shows against Watford and Exeter, the Reds boss clearly felt Ward was the better option at no.2 than the Hungarian. Some fans have been saying he's a better option than the no.1, too!

Simon Mignolet

"Simon Mignolet has struggled for a while at Anfield and I do think Klopp will look to replace him in the summer, but not with Ward just yet.

"Klopp has taken a look at the Welshman, given him a few chances in the first team, and it seems wants him to further his development with someone he clearly trusts.

"The links with David Wagner would suggest Ward has, at the very least, put himself on the manager's radar for the long-term."

What has impressed you in his two Premier League appearances under Klopp?

"I would say his 'presence' has been pretty noticeable, so far. He seems confident with commanding his box and communicates well.

"Against Swansea, at 0-0 and Liverpool forever relinquishing possession, he claimed a ball and then told everyone to calm down. A hint of his maturity, perhaps.

"His distribution isn't bad - Liverpool have had to make do with Mignolet failing to find the halfway line for three seasons now - and he seems to be a good shot-stopper too. But shouldn't every keeper?"

Any weaknesses to be wary of?

"I wouldn't want to be too harsh on him at the age of 22, as he can still improve in every aspect of his game.

"I suppose he's looked a little slow getting across the ground on occasions, and his footwork has sometimes puzzled me.

"There was a save he made against Swansea which seemed through luck rather than design, his legs getting in a tangle but somehow pushing the ball away.

"His age is still a weak point, too. I can recall an Under-21s game last year against Norwich where he should have done better with the opener, and he never really recovered. The game ended 4-4 and he would have been disappointed with his performance.

"Mentality is really big for a goalkeeper, so hopefully he can build that up."
