Origi leaves Liverpool

Liverpool striker Divock Origi has joined Wolfsburg on a season-long loan.

The Bundesliga outfit will pay all of his wages and a substantial loan fee of around £6 million to secure the services of the Belgium international. Wolfsburg boss Andries Jonker is willing to give Origi the regular game time Jurgen Klopp believes he needs in order to boost his development.

There is no option for the Germans to buy Origi at the end of the loan, with Klopp still viewing the frontman as part of his long-term plans. Origi dropped down the pecking order at Anfield following this summer's arrival of striker Dominic Solanke from Chelsea.

The 22-year-old was a late substitute against Watford on the opening weekend but hasn't featured since and didn't even make the bench for Liverpool's past two matches.
