Loris Karius’ agent has squashed rumours of his client moving back to Anfield from Beskitas.

Karius, 25, completed a move to the Super Lig champions on a two-year loan deal after Jurgen Klopp signed Alisson for a fee in the region of £67million.

The German goalie made two costly errors in last season’s Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid and remains unpopular in the Turkish side.

He was at fault for the opening goal in a 2-0 Europa League defeat to Malmo, having also been blamed for misjudging a cross on his debut against Bursaspor.

Rumours are rife Besiktas would be keen to send him back to Anfield and sign striker Divock Origi instead, but his agent has dismissed the reports.

“Complete nonsense,” Florian Goll told FourFourTwo. “I wonder where such things come from. This news is absolutely untrue.

“Loris is on loan to Besiktas for two years – that’s the situation. The club has no intention of ending this loan contract prematurely.

“It’s fact that Loris is the clear number one at Besiktas, he played every game and showed good performances.”
