Loris Karius set for Liverpool return after Besiktas stall on permanent deal

Loris Karius could be set for a Liverpool return due to Turkish giants Besiktas being unable to finance a permanent deal. (h/t Mirror)

The German had been on a 2-year loan at the Turkish side, with the deal set to expire in 2020.

According to the terms of the agreement, Besiktas have paid a £2.25m loan fee to Liverpool and will have to pay a further £5million to make the deal permanent. The Reds will also receive 20 percent of any future fee should Besiktas choose to sell him. (h/t Telegraph)

Loris Karius

The 26-year-old German shot-stopper looked to have beaten Simon Mignolet to the Number 1 spot for Liverpool. Unfortunately, his performance in Champions League Final against Real Madrid put an end to that.

Liverpool signed Brazilian keeper Alisson Becker for a then world-record fee of £65m in 2018. His time at Merseyside numbered, the German chose to resurrect his career elsewhere.

He has been reasonably successful for Besiktas and has made 56 appearances for the Istanbul based side. (h/t Whoscored)

Besiktas are obligated to buy Karius at the end of the loan spell provided certain performance-related clauses are met, mostly in relation to appearances and European qualification.

With the Turks failing to stump up the required fee, the chances of a permanent deal being struck are remote.

Besiktas are said to be keen to extend the player’s existing loan deal. But with Karius’s contract at Liverpool expiring in 2021, the Reds are unlikely to sanction any deal that won’t get the German off their books permanently.

Karous joined Liverpool from Mainz in 2016 in a deal worth £4.7million.  The German’s career at Liverpool looks to be done and he is likely to be moved on in the summer on a permanent basis.

Liverpool will hope to recoup the amount they paid for the keeper.

Massey who is the current head of medical services at Liverpool will leave the club on March 1st to take up a position at FIFA.

Having been at the club for almost seven years, Massey has played a key role in the Reds being one of the fittest teams in the league.

Liverpool are an extremely well-run club both on and off the pitch. Driscoll should relish the ability to work with the Reds without having to worry about politics or unrest.

In Driscoll, Liverpool look to have found an excellent candidate to continue the work of Andrew Massey as the Reds prepare for life without the medical genius.

Christie-Davies will now link-up with the Groen en Zwart at their winter training camp in Malta. He is the third Liverpool player to leave on loan this month following Herbie Kane and Rhian Brewster.

The 22-year-old joined Liverpool from Chelsea and made his debut last month in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals against Aston Villa.

Bernd Storck is the manager of Cercle Brugge, who gained promotion to Belgium’s top-flight last season.

The German coach was previously in charge of Royal Excel Mouscron, where Taiwo Awoniyi spent time on loan last season.

Cercle currently have 13 players on loan at the club. The Welshman’s versatility has seen him perform in midfield, on the wing and upfront for the Liverpool Under-23s this season. This could boost his chances of a starting berth.

Cercle are currently bottom of the Belgian top tier, seven points off their closest rivals Waasland-Beveren after taking just 11 from their opening 21 games.

A versatile forward, Millar is capable of playing both upfront and on the left flank with equal proficiency.
