Former Liverpool Loris Karius has found admirers hard to come by in recent seasons.
The German shot stopper plummeted from first choice to fifth choice goalkeeper after his disastrous performance for Jurgen Klopp’s side in the 2017 Champions League final. Loan spells at Besiktas and Union Berlin failed to raise his profile either, as both clubs decided not to sign him on a permanent basis.
However, Newcastle boss Eddie Howe has taken a shine to the 29-year-old, signing him on a four month loan contract that will expire just before Christmas. But as attractive and stylistic as Newcastle's football has been under the former Bournemouth manager, a move to St James’ Park still significantly trails behind the prospect of meeting infamous porn star Mia Khalifa.

While many Liverpool fans found themselves wanting to close their eyes at the sight of Karius, the likes of Khalifa, fitness model Pamela Reif, and Made in Chelsea star Ianthe Rose were moving closer to the television. And Karius’ tall frame, broad shoulders, bleach blonde hair, and apparent good looks ensured their eyes widened instead of growing square.
Just days before the Reds’ titanic clash against Real Madrid in the Champions League final, Karius posted a photo of himself on Instagram accompanied with the caption ‘eyes on the prize’. Of course, the prize was the Champions League and Karius’ was not about to let his focus slip from the big eared trophy.
However, they may have gravitated towards a rather flirty comment Khalifa put beneath his Instagram photo. “Is he the prize? Because…”, Khalifa posted, followed by some ‘eye’ emojis.

Nobody could blame Karius if his focus was anywhere but the positioning of Karim Benzema or the flight of Gareth Bale’s swerving effort. The German will need to ensure his head and eyes are firmly in the game if he is to be granted an opportunity at Newcastle.
Karius’ move was somewhat of an emergency at Newcastle after current back-up goalkeeper Karl Darlow suffered an ankle injury and former No.2 shot stopper Martin Dubravka was sent on loan to Manchester United.
"We are pleased to add Loris to our goalkeeping group," Howe said after signing the former Germany U21 international. "He is a very good goalkeeper with Premier League and European experience and he will provide competition and support over an important part of the season."
