Liverpool loanee Allan is staying at Brazilian side Fluminense for at least six more months, according to reports this Tuesday.
Website Globo Esporte claims the clubs already had an agreement to extend the spell, and have now exchanged documents to make it official.
The reason is that back in the last summer, Allan had been loaned to Eintracht Frankfurt for one season. But in January, he ended up having the spell cut short and moving to Fluminense in the same deal.
So this time, Liverpool and Flu made an entire new agreement, allowing the player to stay in Brazil for the rest of the local season.
Globo Esporte highlights how important Allan has been for Fluminense. Despite being benched when he arrived, he soon proved himself and now holds a starting place in the team.
The reason Allan still hasn’t been used by Liverpool is because he doesn’t have a work permit. Signed by the Reds back in 2015, the midfielder is having his sixth loan spell.
