The reigning Premier League champions confirmed the loan move in a statement on their website on Monday.
“Loris Karius has completed a loan move to Bundesliga side Union Berlin for the duration of the 2020-21 season.
“The Liverpool goalkeeper returns to his homeland and the German top flight, which got under way earlier this month.
“Karius, who will link up with Reds striker Taiwo Awoniyi at Union Berlin, had spent the previous two years with Besiktas, making 67 appearances for the Turkish club over the course of the loan stay.
“The stopper has played 49 games for Liverpool since moving to Merseyside from FSV Mainz 05 back in the summer of 2016, and has been training with Jürgen Klopp’s squad during the build-up to 2020-21.”
Karius made the costly errors which saw Liverpool lose 3-1 to Real Madrid in the 2018 UEFA Champions League final.
With the game at 1-1, he mistakenly threw the ball against an advancing Karim Benzema which put the Spanish giants ahead.
He later spilled a long-range shot from Gareth Bale into his own net which dashed any hopes of coming back into the game for the Reds.
