Union Berlin have confirmed that Loris Karius and Taiwo Awoniyi will return to Anfield after their loan ends.
The pair were loaned out to Bundesliga training last summer and have had relatively mixed experiences away from Merseyside.
Karius only played four times in the league for Union Berlin, used as a second-choice goalkeeper for Andreas Luthe, but kept three clean sheets during that time.
Meanwhile, striker Awoniyi has made 21 Bundesliga appearances, scoring five goals and providing three assists for his teammates.
The future of Karius and Awoniyi is on hold when they return to Merseyside, with the two unlikely to have a long-term future at the club.
Karius is under contract at Anfield until next summer, while Awoniyi’s deal has two more years to go.
ECHO understands Liverpool would demand fees of at least £ 8million to part ways with Awoniyi.
