Then he signed a short-term deal and, despite the return of Dubravka since then, he has been offered an extension to the end of the season according to Florian Plettenberg.
It means three goalkeepers are now behind Nick Pope at the club, who has helped Newcastle cultivate the meanest defence in the Premier League with just 11 goals conceded.
Karl Darlow has returned from injury after his injury forced them to pick up Karius at the start of the season.
But with two more goalkeepers also now vying for minutes, it has now been reported he is expected to go out on loan for game time.
Huddersfield Town have already enquired about a transfer for the 32-year-old, but with Dubravka cup-tied in the Carabao Cup and Karius’ extension yet to be confirmed a loan could depend on injuries.
Before signing for Newcastle, Karius’ previous two seasons had seen him loaned out to Besiktas and Union Berlin from Liverpool.
