The 19 year-old had been with Town at the latter stage of last season signing a loan deal in March and stayed until the end of the season contributing three goals in seven appearances as Town pushed for promotion.

Ward was born in Bradford on the 11th December 1991 and started his footballing career at Bradford City's youth setup but was snapped up by rivals Leeds United aged 14. He was offered terms at Leeds but turned it down to join Premier League Bolton Wanderers in 2007. He made his professional debut at Bolton coming on as a substitute in 1-0 defeat by Sunderland in August 2009.

In November 2009 Ward was loaned out to Swindon Town for the rest of the 2009/10 season and scored 9 goals in 31 games as the Wiltshire club pushed for promotion but lost in the play-off final to Millwall.

At the start of the 2010/11 season Ward signed a new three-year deal at Bolton Wanderers but was sent out to Coventry City on loan where he made five appearances but the loan deal was cut short due to a groin injury that kept him out of action until the following March.

Once the 19 year-old recovered from injury he was snapped up on loan by Town and impressed during his loan spell with some fine displays. With the recent departure of Anthony Pilkington and uncertainty that Gary Roberts could leave Ward is a fine addition to the squad.

A direct, pacey winger with an eye for goal, Ward is a fantastic signing for the club and definitely one to watch for the future.
