Leicester City have tied up a deal for ex-Aberdeen goalkeeper Danny Ward as he commits to the Foxes until the summer of 2025.

The Welsh international has played most of his club games out on loan but has proven reliable back-up for number one Kasper Schmeichel at Leicester City. He will now remain with the Champions League-chasing club long-term.

He made 14 appearances for Leicester City since joining the club in 2018. Capped 12 times by Wales at international level, Ward was a promising prospect at Liverpool and Aberdeen handed him regular chances at a big club, playing 29 times in the 2015/16 season before completing his permanent Foxes switch a few seasons ago.

Ward said of his new deal at the Premier League side: “It’s a really good feeling [to sign a new contract]. I had a really good feeling the first time around when I signed and, luckily, we’ve been able to grow together as a Club and as a team so 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 and, as a player, to be involved in that is really exciting. I can’t wait to see what’s ahead for us.”
