- Marko Grujic has signed a new contract at Liverpool before switching to Hertha Berlin on loan
- The 22-year-old midfielder will spend the season on loan at the German side
- Grujic represented Serbia at the summer World Cup in Russia
Serbian international Marko Grujic has penned a new contract at Liverpool and headed straight to Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin on a season-long loan.
According to a UK Sun report the Serbian star has committed his future to the Anfield dwellers before moving to the German topflight for the new Bundesliga season.
The 22-year-old Grugic joined Liverpool in 2016 from Red Star Belgrade.
However, the Serbian international has only enjoyed 14 appearances for the Reds during that time and is eager to play regularly.
Grugic played on loan at Cardiff City and helped the Bluebirds gain promotion to the English topflight from the Championship.
Cardiff manager Neil Warnock was eager to sign Grugic over the summer but the deal failed to see the light of the day before the window closed.
Also Italian side Torino had a loan offer rejected for the midfielder this week.
However, Liverpool chiefs have now approved a loan deal after signing an extension.
Grugic will be hoping to impress club boss Jurgen Klopp while plying his trade in Germany’s topflight.
The Serbian was in action at the summer’s World Cup but could not help Serbia reach the knockout stages.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Brazilian forward Robert Firmino has issued a warning to Premier League defending champions Manchester City to beware as the Liverpool are gunning for the title.
According to a UK Sun report citing sources at Daily Mirror the 26-year-old Liverpool forward believes the Reds are capable of ending that Premier League drought this season.
Liverpool coughed out about £177m for quality additions in the summer to strengthen the Jurgen Klopp-tutored side and smashed West Ham in their opening Premier League fixture last week.
