Marko Grujic leaves Liverpool on loan

Marko Grujic

Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic has joined Porto on a season-long loan.

It had appeared that the 24-year-old would be staying at Liverpool after failing to secure a move yesterday but some European leagues are still able to do business which enabled Porto to swoop today.

Anfield officials had insisted that the player wouldn’t be allowed to move yesterday in the hope of securing a transfer fee for the Serbian but nobody stepped forward with the cash. However, a decision was made today to let him leave following this new approach.

Grujic signed a 5-year deal with Liverpool in January 2016 after a £5.1million deal was agreed with Red Star Belgrade.

There is no obligation on Porto to make the deal permanent once the loan concludes.
