Liverpool have ended Nuri Sahin’s loan spell with the club five months before scheduled after his poor performances.
The Reds won a fierce battle with Arsenal to sign the highly rated Real Madrid midfielder on loan in the summer, but the Turkish international has failed to live up to his reputation.
Three goals in 12 appearances is not bad for a midfielder, but his overall contribution has been limited to a bit part role and the player was promised something very different in the summer.
Sahin has now re-joined Borussia Dortmund on an 18-month loan deal, a club with whom he won the Bundesliga in 2011 as stated on Liverpool’s official site.
Contracted to Real Madrid, Sahin has never had a look in under Jose Mourinho with the likes of Luka Modric and Xabi Alonso ahead of him in the Madrid pecking order.
Liverpool are now sure to sign a midfielder this month after losing Sahin and Joe Cole in a matter of weeks and the fitness of Lucas and Steven Gerrard is always a worry.
