Liverpool transfer news: Loris Karius expects to remain at Besiktas next season ruling out Anfield return

Loris Karius has indicated he expects to remain with Besiktas next season and will not be returning to Liverpool.

Karius was sent to the Turkish Super Lig outfit on a two-year loan deal back in August, a couple of months after his poor display in the Champions League final, and soon after new No.1 Alisson was signed by the Reds.

Speaking after Besiktas’ 2-1 loss to Trabzonspor, the 25-year-old revealed he does not believe he will return to the Premier League.

“This is a team game. I must not forget this, I am disappointed,” he said.

“Maybe we could have got a point. We have another game [before the end of the season] and a game to win.

“Then we will continue our preparations. I think that if all parties are happy and satisfied, I will continue. My contract with Besiktas continues.”

Back in March, Besiktas manager Senol Gunes admitted Karius’ loan from Liverpool simply ‘hasn’t worked out’.

After failing to make a routine save in a 3-2 win over Konyaspor, Gunes revealed he was not happy with the goalkeeper.

“He was at fault for the goals he conceded,” Gunes said. “Karius has gone a bit stagnant, something is wrong with his electricity, motivation, enthusiasm for the game.

“It has been like that since the beginning. He does not really feel a part of the team, it’s something we haven’t been able to work out and, of course, I am partly to blame for this.

“Something is wrong, he has also been unlucky. [He] is talented but it hasn’t worked out and we have a problem. Let me put it this way, if I still had Tolga (Zengin) available I would play him.”

Recently, however, Karius’ form has improved and Besiktas are no longer against the glovesman staying around for the 2019/20 season.
