Liverpool loanee Loris Karius will be staying at Besiktas this summer according to Fanatik.

Per the source, Karius held talks with Besiktas director Umut Guner making it clear that he wants to stay on at the club.

The German keeper has been linked with a summer exit and there were rumours that Besiktas were considering cutting his loan deal short.

Karius joined Besiktas on a two-year loan from Liverpool last summer but the club and player had the option to terminate the contract this summer.

There has been confusion over whether there is a mandatory buy clause for Besiktas in the contract if the loan enters the season.

Besiktas informed Turkish-Football that there is no mandatory clause on Karius’ contract and that the Black-Whites have the option to cancel or extend the deal this summer.

And additionally, there is no clause in the contract for the future sale as Besiktas have total control over the loan deal.

Karius kept six clean sheets in 30 league games last season but conceded 39 times.

Besiktas finished the 2018-19 season in third place and will be managed by Abdullah Avci next term who replaced Senol Gunes.
