Kirkland: Leicester good move for Liverpool keeper Ward

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Chris Kirkland is backing Danny Ward over his move to Leicester City.

Ward has opened talks with the Foxes over he last 24 hours.

And Kirkland feels the King Power Stadium is the ideal place for the 25-year-old to launch his Premier League career.

"He [Ward] had a great season at Huddersfield when they got promoted. He came back to Liverpool and he's not really been involved," Kirkland told Sky Sports.

"I've seen him a few times for Liverpool's U23s and he's done superbly but he needs to be playing. If that [switch] to Leicester happens he will be a big loss to Liverpool, but for Danny it is a fantastic move."
