Cardiff City agree deal in principle with Liverpool to re-sign midfielder Marko Grujic on loan – reports

Cardiff City have agreed a deal in principle to re-sign Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic on loan, according to reports.

Grujic is set to return to the Cardiff City Stadium for another season following a successful loan period last term.

The Bluebirds signed the Serbian midfielder in January and he went on to make 13 league appearances in a successful promotion bid.

Now in the Premier League, Cardiff City have agreed a deal in principle with Liverpool to re-sign Grujic on a season-long loan deal, according to Football Insider.

Neil Warnock is working with a limited budget this season and as he looks to transform his Championship team into one capable of competing in the Premier League, he will be partly relying on loan deals.

Grujic, who was part of the Serbian World Cup squad in Russua, served the Bluebirds well last season, adding a much-needed balance to the midfield in the absence of the injured Aron Gunnarsson.

And he is likely to succeed again in the Premier League, where he will have more space to embrace his more natural advanced role.

The deal also works well for Liverpool, who are set to choose Cardiff over a number of interested European clubs.

Grujic enjoyed his time at Cardiff City last season and another loan spell will give him a full season’s worth of experience in the Premier League.

Liverpool are keen for the Serbian to experience the league fully before ideally returning to become part of the Reds’ first-team plans.

The details of the deal are expected to be ironed out within the next week with Neil Warnock confident of completing the deal sooner rather than later.
