Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has completed his move to Turkish side Besiktas on a two-year loan deal.

Karius has not played a competitive game for the Reds since committing two errors in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in May.

The German, 25, has made 49 appearances for Liverpool since joining the club from Mainz in 2016. He was equally named on the bench in Liverpool’s game against West Ham.

“Everybody at LFC wishes Loris the best of luck during his loan spell,” said a statement on Liverpool’s website.

Jurgen Klopp opted to keep Simon Mignolet as the second choice goalkeeper considering his vast Premier League experience.

Carragher: Nothing should hinder Liverpool’s title chances

Jamie Carragher has insisted that nothing must come in the way of Liverpool and the winning the Premier League title this season.

The Merseysiders continued their winning start in the Premier League with a narrow 1-0 win over Brighton. The solitary strike from Mo Salah was enough to send the Reds to the top after Man City drew at Wolves.

Karius will play in the Europa League if his new side seals a spot in the group stages.

Besiktas contested the first leg of their Europa League play-off against Partizan on Thursday and continue their league schedule at home to Antalyaspor on Sunday evening.
