Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic will stay with German Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin on loan for the new season.

His loan return to Hertha Berlin was confirmed by Liverpool earlier on Monday.

Marko Grujic impressed a great deal while he was on loan at the German capital club last season.

The 23-year-old scored five goals and also added one assist in 20 Bundesliga starts and two substitute appearances for Hertha Berlin during the last campaign.

Several German top flight sides were interested in taking the young Serbian international midfielder on loan for the new season but the player has opted to remain with Hertha Berlin.

Apart from Hertha Berlin, Eintracht Frankfurt and Werder Bremen were also linked with him.

Marko Grujic has been at Liverpool since his £5m move from Serbian club Red Star Belgrade.

The Serbian midfielder was the first signing of the Jurgen Klopp managerial era at Anfield.

Grujic signed for Liverpool in January 2016 and he has been sent out on loan on numerous occasions.

He was part of the Cardiff City squad that secured promotion to the Premier League at the end of the 2017/18 season.

Marko Grujic was on loan with the Bluebirds during that season.

The eight-cap Serbian international has played 14 times for Liverpool since his transfer three years ago.
