Manager Derek McInnes has today brought in Liverpool keeper Danny Ward on a loan spell.

The 22 year old stopper joins us on a season long deal and trained with his new colleagues during today’s double session and he will be part of the squad for our next pre season friendly against St Johnstone.

Having begun his career at Wrexham he made the move to Anfield in 2012 and has been a regular for their under 21 side and signed a new long term deal recently.

He has also taken in a loan spell with League Two side Morecambe, as well as being part of Liverpool’s first team squad towards the end of last season.

He has also been part of the senior Wales team since 2013, and has four under 21 caps.

Speaking to the Official Site after capturing the youngster, McInnes explained.

‘I am delighted to get Danny on board. He is a young goalkeeper we have been aware of for some time. We are thankful to Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers in particular for allowing this to happen. He is someone who is highly regarded at his club and they see the importance of getting him out on loan. Danny now has the task and challenge of playing football at a good level with us.’
