Leicester keeper Danny Ward who saved THREE penalties in shootout win over Wolves signs new contract until 2025


LEICESTER’S experienced No2 keeper Danny Ward has signed a new contract tying him to the Foxes until 2025.

The 27-year-old Wales international has provided solid back-up to first choice stopper Kasper Schmeichel since signing from Liverpool for £12million in the summer of 2018.

He made his debut in August that year in the second round of the EFL Cup, keeping a clean sheet in a 4–0 win over Fleetwood Town.

But his finest moment for the Foxes came in the next round when he saved three penalties in a shootout win over Wolves at Molineux after keeping another clean sheet during the 90 minutes.

Ward won his 12th cap for Wales in the 1-0 world cup qualifying win over the Czech Republic last month and says he is excited about what the future holds for Leicester under Brendan Rodgers.

The Foxes take on Southampton in Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final at Wembley – in front of 4,000 fans – looking to win the trophy for the first time in their history.

Ward told LCFC TV: “We’ve been able to grow together as a team and I’m really excited for what lies ahead.

“Even in my short time here, you can see in terms of facilities alone, the step up has been incredible.

“The success we’ve had in the league too, we’ve been on a European adventure as well, so step by step, we’re going in the right direction.

“As a player, to be involved in that is really exciting. I can’t wait to see what’s ahead for us.”
