Cardiff City boss Neil Harris has spoken about what their capture of Kieffer Moore means for Danny Ward

Neil Harris expects Danny Ward to leave Cardiff City this summer.

The striker joined the Bluebirds from Neil Warnock's former club Rotherham United in the summer of 2017 but recently saw his contract with Cardiff expire.

Ward committed his short-term future to the club by seeing out the remainder of the protracted 2019/20 season, despite seeing his deal run out.

However, he's now expected to move on to pastures new, with Huddersfield Town linked with a move for the frontman.

"I think he will [leave]," said Harris.

"Me and him have a fantastic relationship. We've been aware for a little bit of time now that Danny Ward might leave us. Being out-of-contract naturally comes with interest.

"He's been very loyal to me after lockdown where he could easily have made the same decision as others lads in the game have to not play, but he stayed and worked great for us, and personally as well by scoring a couple of goals.

"Danny is a northern lad. He's got a young, beautiful family and sometimes, location and contract status dictates what you do in football.

"If Danny is to leave us, it'll be sad for me because I enjoy working with him but also I fully understand that sometimes you have to move on and do what's best for you family wise."

"If Danny was to leave us - and it is still an 'if' at the moment, but it's more probable than probably not - and Kieffer's come in, I certainly feel we're okay," he added.

"I think it's important that we don't stand still.

Ward netted eight times in his 33 appearances for Cardiff last term.

He has scored a total of 12 goals in 68 outings in all competitions in his three seasons in South Wales.
Robert Glatzel won't get a game in front of Moore , and they won't play together .
He would fit the profile of target man .
