Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic has completed a season-long loan move to Hertha Berlin, subject to global clearance.

But Grujic is to continue his development at Hertha Berlin, who he will join on a season-long loan deal.

The 22-year-old will then head to Germany to complete a loan move to Hertha Berlin after the Bundesliga side saw off interest from various clubs.

The Serbian global was also the subject of an offer from Italian side Torino, who wanted to bring the midfielder to the club on a loan deal with a view to signing the player permanently the following summer, which the Reds quickly rejected.

Despite not making an appearance for the White Eagles in Russian Federation, the Bluebirds were keen to re-sign the 22-year-old.

22 year old Grujic enjoyed helping Cardiff in their successful quest to return to the Premier League last season but decided not to return there this season.

With the arrival of Naby Keita and Fabinho this summer, as well as the continued improvement from the likes of Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner in centre-midfield, Grujic's immediate future was always likely to be away from Liverpool.

He has seen limited first-team opportunities at Anfield so far, joining Cardiff City on loan for the second half of last season. A move to Crystal Palace failed to materialise as Roy Hodgson viewed him as back up, according to the Liverpool Echo.
