Liverpool owe Wrexham £50,000 after Danny Ward made his competitive debut for Wales, according to reports.
Squawka citing the Liverpool Echo, claim Ward’s move to Liverpool in 2012 came with a whole host of add-ons, including at £50,000 payout when Ward gained his first competitive cap in Wales’ first group match against Slovakia.
The bonus is half as much again as the original fee of £100,000 paid by Liverpool to Wrexham four years ago for the 23-year-old keepers services.
The bonus comes just months after Liverpool had to pay a further £100,000 to the Welsh club when Ward made his first senior appearance for Liverpool against Bournemouth back in April.
Despite Ward’s emergence over the last few months both for club and country it seems the 6ft 3in shot stopper may have fallen even further down the pecking order at Liverpool after the signing of Loris Karius earlier on this summer.
He has also gone to the bench for his country too, the return of the now fit Wayne Hennessey means Ward misses out on a starting spot.
