Divock Origi has insisted that his loan agreement with Wolfsburg will only last for one year, as he remains intent on fighting for his place at parent club Liverpool next season.

The Belgian striker has not been disheartened by being deemed surplus to requirements at Anfield and he suggested he still has a future on Merseyside. 

The former Lille starlet completed a switch to Germany on transfer deadline day when it became apparent he would not receive the necessary game time to continue his development. at Liverpool. 


His challenge of making it into Jurgen Klopp's lineup was difficult enough with players such as Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho ahead of him and that task has been compounded by the summer arrivals of Mohamed Salah and Dominic Solanke.

Despite a disrupted start to the campaign at his new club that has seen Andries Jonker dismissed as manager - the Dutchman was previously Arsenal's academy boss - Origi has impressed in recent matches and scored against Werder Bremen.

Speaking to Sky Sports, whilst on international duty with Belgium, he made it clear that he will only be in Germany for one campaign.


"That's what we agreed, a one-year deal. For me it's one year," he said. "If you want more then ask Liverpool, but for what I know it's one year."

For now, the 22-year-old is committed to Wolfsburg and will need to enjoy a successful season in order to break into Liverpool's first team when he returns to Anfield for the 2018/19 season.
