Besiktas presidential candidate Serdal Adali has spoken to the Turkish press and expressed his thoughts on the Loris Karius situation.

The German goalkeeper joined Besiktas on a two-year loan deal from Liverpool during the 2018 summer window, and his loan period with the Super Lig club will expire at the end of this season.

Earlier reports suggested there’s a mandatory redemption clause for the Liverpool loanee but Adali says this isn’t the case, as covered by Beyaz TV journalist Sercan Dikme.

Adali has insisted Besiktas don’t have to sign the 26 year old at the end of the season despite the initial reports about the agreement with the Premier League side.

Subsequently, given his form this season, the Turkish club are likely to part ways with Karius at the end of the season and the former Mainz goalkeeper has previously stated he could still play for Liverpool.

However, this may be difficult for the German as Jurgen Klopp now has Adrian as Alisson’s back up.

Karius’ Liverpool contract will expire at the end of June 2021.
