Liverpool loan Marko Grujic to Porto for the season
How did the deal go?
The Serbia international appeared set to stay at Anfield until January after a move to Werder Bremen failed to materialize on Monday.
Liverpool were seeking around £ 18million for Grujic and had previously insisted they would not approve a loan.
They changed their minds, however, following an approach from Porto on Tuesday.
The departure of central midfielder Danilo Pereira from Porto to Paris Saint-Germain had opened up a place for Grujic and Liverpool decided his development would be best served by spending the rest of the season in Portugal.
With Liverpool midfielder heavily stacked, Jurgen Klopp was excited about the prospect of Grujic having the opportunity to test himself at Champions League level for Porto, who are in the same squad as Manchester City, Olympiacos and Marseille. .
Does he have a future at Anfield?
Grujic will be delighted that Liverpool have granted a loan, as he was keen to play regularly after impressing in two Carabao Cup appearances so far this season.
He still has hopes that he can shine for Porto and prove to Klopp that he has a long-term future at Liverpool.
Will someone else be leaving before the next deadlines?
There could be other loan deals with Ben Woodburn, Nathaniel Phillips and Yasser Larouci all attracting interest from Football League clubs.
Xherdan Shaqiri, who is recovering after testing positive for COVID-19, said he wanted to stay and fight for his place.
