It is that moment of the season when Huddersfield Town supporters should saviour every memory as the club is on the brink of playing Premier League football next season – a first for the club.
David Wagner is the first man that Terriers will thank for the superb campaign they’ve enjoyed, but secondly it is the playing squad who have followed the manager’s philosophy and gone that extra inch this year.
More specifically the goalkeeper Danny Ward, who saved Fernando Forestieri’s penalty in the shootout that sent Huddersfield to Wembley and the possibility of promotion to the top-flight.
The 23-year-old is currently on loan at the club from Liverpool and has earned himself high-regarded scout reports for the Merseyside outfit, however, he needs to weigh up his options and decide whether his future lies at Anfield.
It is sure to say that Ward has become a fan favourite and they would grab the arm off if he was signed on a permanent basis at the John Smith’s Stadium, especially when you look at his performances in the latter stages of the regular season.
The Welshman is, unfortunately, contracted to Liverpool until the summer of 2021 but that doesn’t mean Wagner shouldn’t attempt to sign the goalkeeper for the long-term.
He is still fairly young for his position with years ahead of him, so the Wrexham-born man will only get better and Huddersfield Town would kick themselves if he later went on to become a consistent Premier League ‘keeper.
Terriers, would you sign Danny Ward permanently this summer? Is he a fan favourite? How much do you think it would take to bring him to Yorkshire? Let us hear your thoughts in the comments below!
