Premier League giants Liverpool have announced their second first-team departure of the day, with Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi joining Union Berlin.
Awoniyi spent last season on loan at the Bundesliga outfit and notched up five goals and three assists 21 appearances.
Berlin has now decided to make the move permanent, with the 23-year-old leaving Merseyside without making a single appearance for the first team despite joining the club in 2015.
Taiwo Awoniyi has completed a permanent transfer to Union Berlin.
The striker returns to the Bundesliga club – with whom he spent the 2020-21 season on loan, helping them to a seventh-placed finish – after a deal was finalised today.
Awoniyi joined Liverpool back in the summer of 2015 and spent the majority of his six years with the Reds out on loan at a variety of European clubs.
He had spells with FSV Frankfurt, NEC Nijmegen, Royal Excel Mouscron (twice), KAA Gent, FSV Mainz 05 and most recently with Union Berlin last term.
The 23-year-old had been part of Jürgen Klopp’s pre-season training camp squad in Austria this month before sealing the formalities of his switch.
Everyone at Liverpool FC wishes Taiwo the best of luck for the future.
