Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has admitted he can imagine staying at Union Berlin beyond the end of the season.

The German goalkeeper is currently on loan with the Bundesliga side, having been shipped out by Liverpool in the summer after being deemed surplus to requirements.

He’s endured something of a disappointing campaign in his homeland, having managed just four appearances in the Bundesliga this season.

He is expected to return to Liverpool in the summer when his loan deal ends, although his stay there is unlikely to be a long-term one.

He has a contract with Jürgen Klopp’s side until the summer of 2022 but is very much out of the picture at the club after a disastrous two years with them following his move from Mainz in 2016.

A permanent exit is the most likely conclusion, and Karius would have nothing against staying where he currently is, despite his struggles.

“I still have a contract with Liverpool FC until 2022,” he told BILD.

“But of course, I can imagine staying in Berlin if everything fits. I’m not just passing through here.

“The mentality of the people and the spirit of the team are good for me. I’m basically a down-to-earth guy. Even though I drive an expensive car.”
