Lucas Leiva’s proposed loan switch from Liverpool to Besiktas is off
Lucas Leiva’s proposed loan switch from Liverpool to Besiktas is off, according to the Turkish club’s president Fikret Orman.
The midfielder was expected to leave Anfield this summer after falling down the pecking order in manager Brendan Rodgers’ plans, but an injury to Jordan Henderson has seen any ideas to offload him shelved.
Lucas was recalled to the Reds’ starting line-up in the 0-0 draw with Arsenal on Monday night and put in an impressive performance.
That alongside the injury to Henderson has seen the Brazil international reprise his first team role.
