• Brazilian midfielder is yet to earn a work permit allowing him to play in the UK.
  • The 19-year-old heads out on third loan spell following move from International in 2015.

Liverpool starlet Allan Rodrigues has joined Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin on a season-long loan. Rodrigues, 19, has spent the last 10 days training with the German side but has now made the move official, as confirmed via the club's official website.

"We are pleased that we have gained a talented young player for us," says Hertha Berlin CEO Michael Preetz told the club's official website.

Allan said: "I immediately felt comfortable with the team. I therefore look forward to playing for Hertha BSC."

Allan arrived at Liverpool from Internacional for £500,000 ($730,000) last summer. However, with no working visa, he was immediately farmed out to Finnish club Seinäjoen Jalkapallokerho on loan. After helping them win their domestic league title, the Brazilian midfielder briefly returned to Anfield in October 2015, before leaving again for first-team football opportunities with Belgian club Sint-Truidense for the remainder of the 2015-16 season.

Liverpool are yet to confirm whether the Brazilian youngster has earned a work permit allowing him to play in England with his latest move suggesting that process is still ongoing.

Speaking through the website of former side Sint-Truidense in April, Allan said he was unsure of his future at the club. "I don't know about the future, a lot depends on my visa, it is not easy to get a visa in England. That's too bad because I look forward to playing for Liverpool. It's a big and a nice club. But Liverpool will decide about my future."

Allan becomes the fourth player to leave Merseyside on loan this season. The 19-year-old winger Ryan Kent too has joined Barnsley, while goalkeepers Danny Ward and Adam Bogdan have moved to Huddersfield and Wigan Athletic respectively,
