Loan Move Done: Liverpool Goalkeeper Karius Joins Union Berlin

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has completed his loan move to Bundesliga side Union Berlin.

The 27-year-old has spent the last two seasons on loan at Besiktas having been ousted from the No.1 shirt at Anfield by Alisson.

Now, Karius returns to Germany for the first time since joining the Reds from Mainz in 2016.

Bundesliga minnows Union are looking to consolidate their place among the country’s elite after finishing 11th in 2019-20, their first-ever season in the top flight.

“I'm looking forward to my new opportunity in Berlin and I’m happy to be playing in the Bundesliga again,” the German shot-stopper told Union’s official website.

“Union is a special club, one that has earned a great deal of respect, not just by promotion to the Bundesliga. I would like to play my part in this positive development and help to achieve the great goal of staying in the Bundesliga.”
