Hertha sporting director Michael Preetz confirmed, via Goal: ‘It is 100 per cent certain that the loan agreement between us and Liverpool and the contract with Marko Grujic will end on June 30.

‘It has been agreed by both clubs that he will return to Liverpool. The conclusion of this loan agreement over the past two years is very positive and it has had positive effects on everyone who has been involved.

‘Liverpool will get back a player who is definitely more experienced than he has been before, because he earned very important game practice.

‘Marko is a player who is present in both penalty boxes. Just in his first year he played extraordinary. Now after the restart he is getting back into his good shape.
