Liverpool striker Taiwo Awoniyi has joined German side 1.FC Union Berlin on a season-long loan.
Speaking to the clubs’ official website, Awoniyi said: “I’m looking forward to a new home and the task at 1. FC Union Berlin.
“Mainz was my second stop in Germany after Frankfurt and last year I was able to prove myself in the Bundesliga for the first time. At Union, I want to take the next steps, play as much as possible, develop and help the team to stay in the league.”
Oliver Ruhnert, Director for Professional Football at 1. FC Union Berlin, added: “Taiwo is a highly talented player who already knows the Bundesliga.
“He has already played in several countries and will certainly be settled in our team very quickly. With his physical robustness, his team spirit and work around the box. He should make our attacking game more flexible and further stimulate the attack.”
The striker joined the Liverpool academy in 2015 and has previously enjoyed loaned spells in Germany, turning out for FSV Frankfurt in 2. Bundesliga and Mainz 05 in the top flight last season.
