Tottenham midfielder Grant Ward is enjoying his loan with the Chicago Fire in MLS.

He notched his first senior strike in their 2-1 US Open Cup win against Pittsburgh Riverhounds last week.

"I'm really enjoying it here," said Ward to the Spurs website.

"I went on as a sub against Columbus Crew for my debut and it was a great experience, but I'd probably say my favourite moment so far was last week in the US Open Cup because of the goal I scored.

"I had been looking forward to playing because I was out with a foot injury for a while, so to get the chance to play in the different stadiums in front of all the fans in the top league in America is a great opportunity for me. Hopefully I can push on and get some more goals now."
