Cape Town - Liverpool have been handed a boost with the news goalkeeper Loris Karius has undergone successful surgery on his broken hand on this week.

The former Germany U21 international, who joined the Reds in May for a fee of £4.7 million from Bundesliga side Mainz, injured himself in a collision with Dejan Lovren while on pre-season in the United States.

The 23-year-old posted the news on his Twitter account.

He revealed: "Recovering from a successful surgery. Wires are removed, from now on things can only move upwards!"

The goalkeeper has since returned to the club for light training.

Having picked up the injury so soon after joining the club, Karius was quick to play down the injury and assure fans he would not let a small injury keep him from achieving his goal.

After picking up the injury, he had posted that he would "do everything to come back as soon as I can," and would not let a broken hand "stop me from chasing my dreams."

Karius has previously enjoyed a spell in England as a Manchester City player after being signed following an impressive performance for Germany's U16s in a clash with Macedonia.
