The goalkeeper position at Leeds United has been their biggest problem this season, with summer signings Felix Wiedwald and Andy Lonergan doing nothing to inspire confidence.
Already it seems like Leeds need to sign another goalkeeper, and one they should consider is a 2016/17 promotion winner.
Ward's 'reward' for his feats was not a permanent move, instead he remains at Liverpool and sits in the stands most weekends instead of on the pitch.
He is the Reds' third choice despite the unconvincing performances of Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius, and a move away from the club in January would be best for Ward's career, even if it is in the form of another loan.
Ward is a Wales international who has also featured on loan for Aberdeen, and his Huddersfield spell means he is familiar with the Championship, keeping a clean sheet against Leeds last season.
A move to Leeds may not be appreciated by Huddersfield fans, but Ward should take heed of Rob Green swapping Leeds for the Terriers in the summer and simply make the move which is best for his career.
Leeds need a goalkeeper, and Ward needs to play. A move would be perfect for all parties.
