Liverpool shot-stopper Loris Karius could end up staying at Besiktas for an additional campaign a source close to the player revealed to Turkish-Football.
Contrary to recent reports stating that the Black Eagles have no plans for Loris the Istanbul based side are interested in keeping the player on at the club.
Besiktas would struggle to land Karius on a permanent deal because of financial constraints but would consider another temporary transfer.
The Super Lig side are of the view that it’d be more costly and risky to find a new stopper as opposed to keeping on Karius who is settled after entering his second campaign at the club.
The Black-Whites management and technical staff are actually pleased with the former Mainz player.
The German star has made a number of errors this term but the team has defended poorly on the whole.
Additionally, Loris lost confidence along with the rest of the club towards the end of the Abdullah Avci era which saw his club lose seven of the last eight games he was head coach.
The Black Eagles have won their first two matches since Sergen Yalcin was appointed manager with Karius collecting a clean sheet and conceding just one goal.
Despite rumours that Yalcin would drop Karius the new boss has actually started the 25-year-old twice and publically backed the stopper.
The Germany international is understood to keep his place as Besiktas first-choice shot-stopper for the rest of the season.
Besiktas are currently 7th in the Turkish top-flight just six points behind leaders Sivasspor.
