Loris Karius is close to completing a two-year loan switch to Turkish giants Besiktas according to the Guardian. The report claims that Liverpool have agreed to a deal with Besiktas as Karius is still considering the offer from the Turkish giants.
Karius has been considering his future at the club since we signed Alisson from AS Roma and the report adds that the deal would become a permanent one should Besiktas qualify for Europe with the German playing a certain number of games.
Karius is expected to sign a one-year extension to his Liverpool deal before making the switch to keep his valuation should he return to Anfield, as per the report.
The German’s time at Anfield has been littered by a number of high profile errors and it was only a matter of time before we let go of either Simon Mignolet or Karius.
Some Liverpool fans believed the deal was right for everyone while a few weren’t sure about the deal at all.
Personally I’m gutted karius is going out on loan . In my opinion he could have bean a fantastic keeper for us for many years to come ( may still be I no ) . The fact of the matter is that the timing of his mistakes was awful. I wish him all the best #YNWA #LFC #Karius

All the best Loris Karius on his move to Besiktas, gutted it didn’t work for him at #LFC but a new club/surrounding & away from the media spotlight is what he needs to get his career back on track

Alisson came in, waited for the number 1, Karius expected to stay with Mignolet off so Alisson takes 13, Karius leaves and Mignolet stays. 😆 #AB1

Karius move makes sense for all parties. Needs the opportunity to rebuild his confidence elsewhere without the pressure that comes with LFC. Best of luck @LorisKarius.
