Union Berlin have completed the signing of Loris Karius on a season-long loan deal from Liverpool.


“I'm looking forward to my new opportunity in Berlin and I’m happy to be playing in the Bundesliga again. Union is a special club, one that has earned a great deal of respect, not just by promotion to the Bundesliga," said the goalkeeper, who will compete with Andreas Luthe for the number-one spot at the German capital club.

"I would like to play my part in this positive development and help to achieve the great goal of staying in the Bundesliga," he added.

Oliver Ruhnert, director of professional football at Union Berlin, commented:

"The signing of Loris Karius means we have secured a goalkeeper with great national and international experience. His strengths are well known, so we are pleased to be in an excellent position in this important role of the team from our perspective. For Loris it offers the chance to focus again on the Bundesliga in a stable environment and to try to stay in the league with Union."
