Hull City have completed the loan signing of Liverpool winger Lazar Markovic, after the cancelled another loan spell at Portugal club Sporting CP.
Lazar Markovic has seen his temporary spell with Sporting CP cancelled after the first half of the campaign, with the Liverpool winger now joining Hull City on a six-month loan.
The Serbia international had struggled to establish himself with the Lisbon outfit, and with manager Jorge Jesus looking to streamline his squad, has returned to England.
Earlier on Monday, it was reported that the Tigers were looking to make their fourth signing of the transfer window by sealing a deal for Markovic.
However, while the Serbian made five appearances in the Champions League, he was only used twice from the start in league action and that resulted in Liverpool looking to bring a halt to their arrangement with the Portuguese giants.
The Merseyside outfit are now in a position to confirm that the 22-year-old has returned to the Premier League to represent Hull as Marco Silva looks to reshape his squad at the KCOM Stadium.
In 2014, Liverpool spent £20m to sign Markovic from Benfica but he has made just 34 appearances for the Reds.
This is the third time Markovic being loaned since joining Liverpool in a deal worth £20 million in 2014. He was previously loaned to Turkish side Fenerbahce in 2015-16 season before joining the Portuguese outfit.
Now Markovic will battle relegation with Silva’s improving side, competing with the likes of Robert Snodgrass and Sam Clucas for a regular role out wide.
Markovic is Liverpool’s fourth departure of the January transfer window, following Pedro Chirivella (Aston Villa, loan), Joe Maguire (Fleetwood Town, undisclosed) and Tiago Ilori (Reading, £3.75 million).
At his age, Markovic has 22 appearances and three goals for his national team Serbia.
