Liverpool has confirmed young midfielder Allan has joined German club Hertha Berlin on a season-long deal.
The youngster has moved to Liverpool in September 2015 after having had loan spells in Finland and Belgium. Considering a number of new signings Liverpool have got in midfield in the current transfer window, Jurgen Klopp has sent the player out on loan.
The Brazilian has arrived at Liverpool from Internacional for £500,000 and is one of the future prodigies under Klopp but was loaned as part of his progression.
The 19-year old has already been training with Hertha Berlin as the player is keen on a successful campaign in Germany as the agreement between the two clubs was officially reached.
