LIVERPOOL, England --

Liverpool has sent Serbia winger Lazar Markovic on loan to Turkish club Fenerbahce for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old Markovic cost Liverpool 20 million pounds ($31 million) when he was signed from Benfica in the summer of 2014 but hasn't established himself in the first team.
