Liverpool send winger out on loan a year after paying £20 million for him
Brendan Rodgers insisted the player had a future at Anfield on Friday.

FENERBAHCE HAVE COMPLETED the signing of Lazar Markovic from Liverpool on a season-long loan deal.

Markovic arrived at Anfield last July in a big-money transfer from Benfica, but struggled to nail down a regular place in Brendan Rodgers’ side.

Following his £20 million move to England last July, he made his 11 Premier League starts for the Reds.

And, although Rodgers stated on Friday that the Serbian had a future with Liverpool, Markovic will now spend the 2015-16 campaign in Turkey.

Fener have made a number of high-profile signings in the current transfer window, capturing the likes of Robin van Persie and Nani.

Markovic arrived in Istanbul on Saturday and duly completed a medical with his new club.

“Fenerbahce is a very big club, very big supporters. I’m going to be very happy here,” said Markovic.
