Karius in dig at loan return rumours

On-loan Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has hit back at claims Besiktas are looking to send him back to Anfield.

The Turkish side paid £2.2million to bring in the German on a two-year loan deal in the summer but reports suggested the Super Lig side had asked the Merseysiders to take him back in January.

It is understood there is no break clause in the agreement, which will become permanent for £7.25m in 2020 if certain performance criteria related to appearances and European qualification are met, and the two clubs have not discussed the matter.

Karius himself appeared to dismiss the reports with a post on Instagram which pictured him drinking coffee accompanied by the words “Coffee first, media’s bulls*** second”.
