Loris Karius Liverpool won't be welcoming back the Besiktas loan man

Loris Karius has hit back at reports that Turkish club Besiktas are wanting to cut short his loan move after just three months.

Liverpool continue to pay half of Karius' wages while he tries to recover from the glaring errors he made in Liverpool's Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in May.

Karius' stay in Turkey is set to last two years, but fresh reports had indicated that Besiktas were keen to send the former Mainz star back to Merseyside in exchange for out of favour forward Divock Origi.

The 25-year-old joined the Turkish outfit in the summer on a 2-year loan deal after Liverpool secured the services of Alisson Becker from Roma.

The Liverpool Echo has since rejected those claims, revealing that no option exists in Karius' Besiktas contract which would entitle the Turkish side to offload him at their discretion.

Sources add that the Besiktas board and management have faith in Karius and maintain that the goalkeeper is happy in Istanbul.

Blasphemy against Islam and its Prophet is a sensitive subject in Pakistan, where the crime can carry a compulsory death sentence. Mother-of-four Asia Bibi has been on death row since 2010 when she fell foul of the country's extremist blasphemy laws.

"Complete nonsense", Florian Goll told SID.

Besikta´s goalkeeper Loris Karius throws out the ball during the UEFA Europe League Group I football match Malmo FF v Besiktas in Malmo, Sweden on October 4, 2018.

"It's a fact that Loris is the number 1 at Besiktas and since he made his debut at the club he played in every game and showed good performances".

But according to the Mail's Dominic King on Tuesday morning, even if Besiktas were unhappy with Karius' form and looked to end his time in Istanbul, "it can't happen".

"No thanks, you can keep him free of charge", one fan tweeted.
