On September 26th Kicker reported Loris Karius was on the verge of leaving Liverpool again, this time for Bundesliga club Union Berlin.
Having spent the past two seasons at Besiktas and having a very up and down time with the club, returning to Germany has likely been an attractive option. Some of his performances were widely questioned in the Turkish media, and his wages being unpaid for a long period resulted in the goalkeeper taking action.
That all killed any chance of a permanent transfer, and it’ll be hoped Karius has a better time in Berlin. Bild report he started his medical at the club at 9am, and seemed to be in a good mood.
Having landed in Berlin on Sunday evening, Karius is expected to be able to sign his loan agreement today. There’s no explanation of what Union will be paying Liverpool for the temporary transfer, or whether they’ll be covering the player’s full wages.
Earlier reports suggested there wouldn’t be a buying clause.
