Union Berlin rule out keeping hold of Liverpool goalkeeper Karius

Union Berlin have ruled out keeping hold of on-loan Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius.

BILD says Karius may have been handed his debut by Union Berlin at the weekend but it appears his stay in the German capital is to be short-lived.

The Liverpool goalkeeper is, to be sent back to Merseyside, with Union Berlin holding no interest in turning his loan deal into a permanent arrangement.

Karius was sent on with 20 minutes left against Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday after No 1 goalkeeper Andreas Luthe clashed with opposition forward Marcus Thuram.

Karius was caught out by Luthe's injury and he was left to frantically change in the stands and go onto the pitch without a proper warm-up.

It was Karius' first action in the Bundesliga since he left Mainz back in 2016.
