Liverpool flop Loris Karius is set to join Besiktas on a two-year loan deal, according to reports.
Despite support from Jurgen Klopp after his nightmare Champions League final, Karius was never going to be trusted in goal for the Kop who reacted by shelling out £65million for Alisson Becker.
Karius revealed last month during the club’s pre-season tour of the United States he was not aware of the decision to bag the Brazilian keeper.
And after talks with Klopp, the 25-year-old German will be handed the chance to revive career in Turkey, report the Daily Mail.
Besiktas are looking to replace Fabri who moved to Fulham in the summer after two years in Istanbul.
Despite his imminent departure, Karius is in Liverpool’s travelling party for tonight’s clash with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The German keeper was on the bench for the win against West Ham and will be there again tonight before jetting to Turkey within 24 hours to complete the formalities of his switch to the Super Lig giants.
Besiktas have agreed a long-term loan deal for Karius with the option of making the move permanent if all goes well.
The departure of the former Mainz keeper could be bad news for Simon Mignolet.
Mignolet,30, has also been frozen out at Anfield and is considering his future with the prospect of playing second fiddle to Alisson this term.
But with Danny Ward sold to Leicester City, Klopp does not want to be without experienced back up for the Brazilian, leaving Mignolet who has not featured since the FA Cup defeat to West Brom, stuck on Merseyside.
