After being sent out on loan to Aberdeen, Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward is thriving at the Scottish side and setting his sights on a future at Anfield.

The Dons are this season's surprise title contenders in the Scottish Premier League, sitting second and just three points behind league leaders and reigning champions Celtic.

Ward has played every game for the club this season, keeping 11 clean sheets and excelling for Derek McInnes' side amidst their title push.

Current Liverpool goalkeepers Simon Mignolet and Adam Bogdan have come under fire recently and whilst supporters want Jurgen Klopp to splash the cash on a new shot-stopper, perhaps they already have a ready-made replacement within their ranks.

The 22-year-old Ward is vying for a return to Merseyside when his loan expires and battle for the number one jersey.

According to the Liverpool Echo, he said: "It is definitely an ambition of mine to be Liverpool’s first-choice.

"I have a self-belief where I think I can play at the highest level. Ideally that’s at Liverpool, that would be fantastic."

After signing a long-term contract prior to his Aberdeen move, it seems the youngster is well within Klopp's plans and could even force his way into the Wales set up for the European Championships in France this summer.

Ward has conceded just 20 goals in 21 league games this season, whilst Liverpool have condeded four more in one less game. Consistency has proved an issue for the Reds between the sticks.

Klopp has the option to recall Ward after the festive period, though it would be beneficial for the starlet to remain at Aberdeen and continue his development.
