Liverpool have announced that Marko Grujic is set to return to Hertha Berlin for another loan spell, following a successful season with the Bundesliga outfit in 2018/19.

This will be Grujic fourth loan spell away from Anfield since joining the club for £5m in 2016, he has spent previous seasons on loan with Hertha Berlin (2018/19) Cardiff City (2017/18) Red Star Belgrade (2016/17).

Grujic made 23 appearances for Hertha last season, scoring five goals, and was described as ‘by far the best midfielder I’ve seen in my time [22 years] at the club’ by the team’s coach at the time.

it is understood that, despite these recurring loans, Grujic does have a future at Anfield, with James Milner coming to the end of his contract it is very possible that Grujic could be his ready made replacement if he chooses to move on.
