Loris Karius' agent has rubbished rumours the goalkeeper could cut short his stay at Besiktas and return to Liverpool.

The 25-year-old moved to the Super Lig champion on a two-year loan deal after Jurgen Klopp signed Alisson for a fee in the region of £67million.

Karius made two high-profile errors in last season's Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid and there have been reports in Turkey that Besiktas is unconvinced by his quality following more erratic displays.

He was at fault for the opening goal in a 2-0 Europa League defeat to Malmo, having also been blamed for misjudging a cross on his debut against Bursaspor.

It has been suggested Besiktas would be keen to send him back to Anfield and sign striker Divock Origi instead, but his agent has dismissed the reports.

"Complete nonsense. I wonder where such things come from. This news is absolutely untrue," Florian Goll told SID .

"Loris is on loan to Besiktas for two years – that's the situation. The club has no intention of ending this loan contract prematurely."

"It's fact that Loris is the clear number one at Besiktas, he played every game and showed good performances."
