After nearly a dozen loan spells since joining Liverpool in 2015, Taiwo Awoniyi has finally gone.
The Nigerian striker has signed a permanent deal with Union Berlin, his current club.
The Bundesliga club will pay £6.5 million to secure the 24-year-long-term old’s future.
Awoniyi played the season on loan at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei, where he scored five goals in all competitions and assisted on four others before his season was cut short due to a torn thigh muscle.
Last season, the former U-23 international helped Union qualify for European play for only the second time in their history, and he is looking forwards to settling down at Union after seven loan spells away from Liverpool.
“After lots of loan moves in previous years, I want to finally come and have a home,” Awoniyi said. “I owe so much to Union, so it makes me happy and proud to be back here. It’s fantastic to continue on the great path with the club. I’ll give everything to quickly pick up where I was before my injury.”
Awoniyi, who will wear the No.14 jersey in 2021/22, will meet the rest of the squad in Austria and could feature against Nice on 24 July.
