Marko Grujic completes loan move to Cardiff City

Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic has moved to Championship side Cardiff City on loan for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old Serbian has struggled to make an impact in the first-team since his arrival at the club a year and a half ago and time on loan will give him valuable playing time.

Cardiff currently sit third in the Championship table and face Man City in the FA Cup fourth round later this month.

Grujic will be hoping to achieve big things with the Welsh club – who are just two points behind second place Derby County at present.

Liverpool are understood to have allowed Grujic to join Neil Warnock’s side after being given assurances that the player will receive regular playing time.

While it’s a good move for the player, it’s a shame to see us helping out a manager like Warnock – hopefully the club are receiving a fee for the loan.

Liverpool currently have 12 more players out on loan, having recently recalled Ryan Kent from loan after he received little playing time at Freiburg. He has since joined Bristol City, also promotion contenders in the Championship.

Grujic featured six times for Liverpool this season, starting just once at Leicester in the League Cup.
