Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius is on the verge of returning to his native Germany according to the Daily Mirror.
The German shot stopper is said to be closing in on a season-long loan deal to German capital club Union Berlin.
Karius will return to Germany three years after he left for the Premier League. The error-prone shot stopper joined the English champions in the summer of 2017.
He left Mainz 05 to sign for Liverpool but lasted just 12 months before being farmed out on loan to Turkish Super League outfit Beskitas.

Loris Karius has spent the last two seasons on loan at the Turkish club though his stay was cut short earlier this year due to unpaid salaries.
He has two years left on his Liverpool contract.
His biggest mark in a Liverpool shirt came during the 2018 Champions League final as he was at fault for two goals.
Karius and Liverpool were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid during that final.
Liverpool are also trying to get young attacker Rhian Brewster off their wage bill with a lot of teams keen to sign the £25m-rated player.
Premier League clubs such as Aston Villa, Brighton & Hove Albion, Crystal Palace and Sheffield United are all interested in signing Brewster.
