Ward and Nordfeldt to join Liverpool

Liverpool are set to complete a double goalkeeper transfer swoop by signing Wrexham teenager Danny Ward and IF Brommapojkarna's Kristoffer Nordfeldt. Eighteen-year-old Ward has said he has undergone a medical at the Merseysiders' Melwood training ground after a reported fee in the region of £100,000 was agreed for him to join the Premier League club's Academy. He is a Wales Under-19 international and if he fulfils his potential of playing at full international level or in Liverpool's first team, Wrexham would earn further payments. The shot-stopper last season made his senior debut on loan at Wrexham's non-league rivals, Tamworth, but he has yet to represent the Dragons' first team. Dalglish on Monday ruled out any transfer activity before Tuesday's deadline, however, he added: "Apart from a young goalkeeper coming from Wrexham and that is the Academy."

Personal terms

Ward is in his final year at Wrexham's Centre of Excellence having first joined the club as a 14-year-old. But Liverpool are also set to snap up IF Brommapojkarna goalkeeper Nordfeldt. The 22-year-old Sweden international travelled to England on Monday to discuss personal terms with the Reds. "It's obvious that it feels terrific, but I try to keep the feet firmly planted on the ground." Nordfeldt told "We'll see what plans they have for me. That will certainly be exciting."
