Liverpool loanee Marko Grujic admits he would consider spending another year at Hertha Berlin if they managed to qualify for the Europa League

The 22-year-old midfielder arrived in Germany in the summer after spending the latter part of last season on loan at English Championship side Cardiff City.

However, Grujic’s time at Hertha has been spoiled somewhat by an ankle injury which ruled him out of action for up to two months.

But the Serbian made his return at the end of last month in Hertha’s 3-3 draw with Hoffenheim by playing the full 90 minutes.

Grujic started again in their 2-0 win at Hannover 96 last Saturday and appears set to become a prominent member of Pál Dárdai’s side.

Now, with Hertha just a point adrift of sixth-place Hoffenheim in the final qualification spot for Europa League football next season, Grujic is open to the idea of extending his stay.

“In the long term I would like to prevail at Liverpool,” Grujic told SportBild.

“But if we qualify for the Europa League with Hertha, I see a good chance that I will stay one more year.”

Grujic has made a total of six Bundesliga appearances this season.
