Jurgen Klopp expects Danny Ward to challenge Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius and stake a claim for Liverpool's number one jersey in 2017-18, another sign that the 24-year-old will remain at Anfield beyond the summer rather than being dispatched for on another loan stint.

Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward could be in line for a promotion next season, report The Times.

Leicester seal the signing of Danny Ward from Liverpool

  Leicester seal the signing of Danny Ward from Liverpool Leicester City have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Liverpool over the signing of Danny Ward. Twitter: #lcfc have agreed terms with Liverpool for the transfer of goalkeeper Danny Ward #WelcomeWard … https://t.co/KZVAo73O7l (@LCFC) Following the Reds’ acquisition of Alisson in a world-record deal from Roma, it seems Ward has been deemed surplus to the club’s requirements for the upcoming season. Ward is believed to be keen on finding first-team football elsewhere and it seems he will hope to realise this ambition at Leicester following the move. It’s been reported that Liverpool will receive a fee in the region of £10 million through the sale of Ward, as they continue to trim the squad of its fringe players heading into next season. Liverpool are still well-stocked with goalkeeping options despite Ward’s departure, too. Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet, along with Alisson now, remain on the club’s books.

This is Anfield's Henry Jackson believes the pre-season preparations could become a final chance for Danny Ward to develop as a first -choice goalkeeper at Liverpool. Klopp needs to give Ward toa decent amount of playing time this summer before deciding whether he is worth being retained or not.

Should Liverpool give Danny Ward a chance in goal? Karius was beaten at his near post by Leroy Sane in the first half and went onto concede two more goals as Liverpool won a thriller 4-3.

This comes as more crticism comes Lorius Karius’ way, after making another mistake against Tranmere.

Ward on the other hand put in a great shift during the Reds two opening friendlies against Chester and Tranmere.

Liverpool travel to Bury on Saturday before traveling to Blackburn Rovers next week.

The Reds then fly of to the USA for their Summer tour.

Stoke want loan player in return for Shaqiri deal .
Stoke are reportedly considering asking Liverpool for a player on loan in return as part of any deal to take Xherdan Shaqiri to Anfield. The Mirror reports that Gary Rowett is still looking to add to his squad this summer and could utilise Liverpool’s interest in the Swiss winger. Rowett will be in the market for a replacement for Shaqiri, which could see them try and bring in Harry Wilson, who is a target for a wealth of Championship clubs. The report does not state specifically who Stoke would be looking to land, but you can imagine Wilson is one of the names likely to be discussed. Other players who look set to leave Liverpool include the likes of Danny Ward, Ben Woodburn and Danny Ings, but it is unlikely the latter would want to drop into the Championship. Shaqiri is being heavily tipped to make a move to Anfield this summer with Jurgen Klopp keen to add depth to his squad.
