Besiktas Accidentally Announce Loris Karius Signing Before Deleting Post

Loris Karius' move from Liverpool to Besiktas now looks imminent after the team from Turkey posted on Twitter but quickly deleted it with the expected loan move not confirmed by the Premier League side yet.

When Liverpool played Real Madrid in the Champions League final it very much looked like it might be Loris Karius' final match for the Reds once he made two huge mistakes which cost Jurgen Klopp's side the final and the trophy.

At 0-0 in the second half Karius went to throw the ball out from his hands but all he did was throw it straight at Karim Benzema allowing the Frenchman to score in a virtually open goal.

He could do nothing about Gareth Bale's goal to make it 2-1 but he punched the Welshman's relatively straight forward shot straight into the back of his own net to make it 3-1.

When Klopp decided to spend a then world record fee to bring Roma goalkeeper Alisson into the team it was curtain's for Karius as far as being number one at Anfield was concerned.

Now the 25 year old looks to be going on loan to Besiktas with the Turkish side accidentally announcing the deal on social media:

But that clearly wasn't meant to happen with the Super Lig side very quickly changing their Twitter header back to something else:

The keeper is set to move to Istanbul on an initial two year loan deal worth £2.25 million. Should he reach certain performance indicators, which will include qualifying for Europe then Besiktas will be obliged to sign him on a permanent deal worth £7.25 million in 2020. Liverpool will also get 20% of any future fee as part of a buy on clause.

The Reds will have Simon Mignolet as back up to Alisson for the rest of the season.
