Wrexham could be set for a significant windfall with former goalkeeper Danny Ward set to make a £10million switch to Leicester City.

The 25-year-old came through the ranks at Wrexham's academy and was snapped up by Liverpool in January 2012 for a fee in the region of £100,000, with the Racecourse outfit securing a sell-on clause in the case of the shot stopper leaving Anfield.

And that now looks like becoming reality, with reports Liverpool accepting a bid in the region of £10million from the former Premier League champions for Ward, who will compete for the Foxes number one jersey with Kasper Schmeichel.

With Brazilian international Allison on the verge of completing a £67million move to Liverpool from AS Roma, Wrexham-born Ward was set to find his chances of breaking into Jurgen Klopp’s first-team limited further, having already fallen behind Loris Karius and Simon Mingolet.

Wrexham-born Ward has since had successful loan spells at Aberdeen and Huddersfield, who he helped clinch promotion to the Premier League in the 2016/17 season making 43 appearances.

Ward's form for Aberdeen - keeping 13 clean sheets in just 21 matches - led to a recall by Liverpool, and he made his debut for Klopp's side in a 2-1 win over Bournemouth in April 2016.

He also earned his first start for Wales and third cap overall in his nation's opening game of Euro 2016, a 2-1 victory over Slovakia, deputising for Wayne Hennessey.

Ward had been scheduled to start Thursday night's friendly at Blackburn Rovers having jumped ahead of Loris Karius in the pecking order between the sticks.
