Loris Karius has secured a loan move away from Liverpool for the third consecutive season. 

The 27-year old has joined Bundesliga side Union Berlin on a one-season deal.

Karius has spent the past two seasons on loan at Turkish giants Besiktas, after his 2018 Champions League final horror show for Liverpool precipitated the signing of Alisson.

The German had been part of Liverpool's short pre-season in Switzerland, but hasn't been part of any matchday squads so far this season.

Karius will provide competition for first-choice Union keeper, Andreas Luthe. 20-year old Lennart Moser has been on the bench for their recent Bundesliga outings.

"I'm looking forward to my new opportunity in Berlin and I’m happy to be playing in the Bundesliga again," Karius told his new club's website.

"Union is a special club, one that has earned a great deal of respect, not just by promotion to the Bundesliga.

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

Union have made a disappointing start to the new Bundesliga season, losing 3-1 at home to Augsburg in their opening game before Saturday's 1-1 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach.

"The signing of Loris Karius means we have secured a goalkeeper with great national and international experience," Union director of football Oliver Ruhnert said.

"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"
