Loris Karius has revealed that he is happy to extend his contract at Besiktas and stay at the club for an additional season.
If you fancy a punt over Karius’ future – or any other sporting wager – it would be wise to shop around for the best prices and bonuses on the likes of Thumbsupbonus for the best odds.
The Liverpool loanee has settled into life in Istanbul and has overcome the problems he had earlier on in the season.
Karius had been criticised by head coach Senol Gunes and even had to ask FIFA to take action over unpaid wages.
The German keeper has since resolved his issues with the club and entered an impressive run of form.
“I think that if all parties are happy and satisfied, I will continue (here),” Karius said after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Trabzonspor. “My contract with Besiktas continues.”
“This is a team game, I must not forget this, I am disappointed.
“Maybe we could have got a point. We have another game and a game to win.”
Karius has been first-choice keeper at Besiktas since completing his loan move from Liverpool over the summer.
The 25-year-old at the halfway point of a two-year loan deal with the Black Eagles who paid the Reds an initial fee of £2.25million.
The Black-Whites are obligated to buy him for a further £7.25million in the summer of 2020 if the terms of his contract regarding appearances are met.
Liverpool will also have a 20 percent sell on clause if Karius joins on a permanent move.
The Black-Whites have the option to extend Karius’ loan stay next term and also have a buyout clause option to sign the keeper on a permanent move.
Karius has conceded 40 goals in 29 appearances in all competitions for Besiktas keeping six clean sheets in total.
Besiktas have won their last four successive games and beat leaders Basaksehir 2-1 last week to close the gap at the top to just eight points.
The Black Eagles are also just three points behind 2nd placed Galatasaray – finishing runners up would secure Champions League football.
