The deal was announced on Saturday and the striker has now made his seventh loan move from Liverpool since he joined the club four years ago

The 23-year-old joined the Liverpool academy in 2015 and has gained the first-team experience across European football.

Awoniyi spent last season at Mainz, but previously featured in Germany for FSV Frankfurt, in the Netherlands at NEC Nijmegen, and in Belgium with KAA Gent and Royal Mouscron.

The 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup winner with the Golden Eaglets said he’s looking forward to having a fantastic time at the club.

“I’m looking forward to a new home and the task at 1. FC Union Berlin. Mainz was my second stop in Germany after Frankfurt and last year I was able to prove myself in the Bundesliga for the first time.

“At Union, I want to take the next steps, play as much as possible, develop and help the team to stay in the league,” he said.

Awoniyi has a stint at FSV Frankfurt, NEC Breda, Mouscron (featured on loan twice at Mouscron), Gent, and Mainz.
