The club can confirm Liverpool FC have recalled goalkeeper Danny Ward from his loan spell with Aberdeen FC, with the paperwork being completed this morning.
Danny, who was been with the Dons since the summer, has enjoyed a successful loan period with the club and manager Derek McInnes is grateful for his contributions adding,
'Naturally we are disappointed Liverpool FC have opted to recall Danny. We were very fortunate to secure Danny during the summer and we thank Liverpool for believing Pittodrie would be a good platform for Danny to continue his development
'His progression has been clear for all to see and he's demonstrated to everyone what a capable keeper he is.
'Everyone at AFC would like to thank him for all his efforts during his time here and wish him all her very best in his future career.'
Aberdeen striker Lawrence Shankland returned to Pittodrie a few weeks ago following the end of his loan season at Championship side St Mirren. Lawrence spoke to RedTV upon his return about a season of two halves and his thoughts ahead of 2016/17.
Aberdeen's longest serving member of staff is about to hang up his medical bag, for physio David Wylie is retiring after an incredible 33 years at Pittodrie. But whilst today will be David's last ever league match, he may well be still be involved in the opening European games next season.
