Loris Karius has received as many as five offers to leave Besiktas this summer, but the German has rejected all of the enquiries.

Speaking to Sporx, as cited on the Liverpool Echo, the goalkeeper revealed his desire to remain in Turkey amid all of the transfer speculation.

This season, through my agent, two clubs in the UK, three clubs from Germany, made offers. I turned them down. Besiktas is very special for me.

It had been suggested he could be on the move again this summer after a less than impressive start to life in Turkey.

However, towards the end of the campaign, the German started to rediscover his best form in between the sticks and has clearly been given the support to see through the rest of the loan spell with the club.

It remains to be seen if the player has a long-term future at Anfield, but another impressive season in Turkey could see him secure a permanent move to Besiktas.
