Wolves are said to be interested in signing former Aberdeen goalkeeper and current Wales international Danny Ward (DM).

The goalkeeper has been excellent for Wales at this summer’s Euros and his side are through to the last 16. Wolves have taken notice of his form and are now targeting Ward – who is currently second-choice goalkeeper at Leicester City – for a summer transfer.

Ward recently signed a new deal with Leicester but could be persuaded to move to Wolves if regular first-team football was on offer. Current Wolves number one Rui Patricio could leave the Molineux club this summer as part of a summer rebuild in the wake of manager Nuno Espirito Santo’s exit.

Former Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes brought Ward to Pittodrie in 2015 on loan from Liverpool and he shone over 29 appearances. Ward couldn’t break into the senior Liverpool side and hasn’t made a league appearance for Leicester City since joining in 2018, courtesy of the form of ex-Falkirk goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
