Loris Karius has denied making comments about female fans in Turkey after joining Besiktas on loan from Liverpool. The goalkeeper signed a two-year deal with the Super Lig side after Liverpool brought in Roma's Alisson as his replacement.

A UK newspaper this week quoted Karius as saying that he is being asked for photographs by female supporters in Istanbul.

"I did not have this many fans in England and I can say most seem to be female. Whenever I am out and about in Istanbul whoever recognises me wants a photograph," Karius was quoted as saying. But Karius, who has made a single appearance for Besiktas, posted on social media to deny making the comments.
