Former Liverpool star set to extend Dortmund stay

Borussia Dortmund have taken up the option to sign loanee Nuri Sahin permanently from Real Madrid, as reported by Sky Sports.

The Turkish midfielder is in his second season on loan to the Bundesliga side but he is set to make the move permanent in the summer for around £5million.

Sahin had a fairly unsuccessful spell on loan at Liverpool back in 2012, making just seven league appearances before the Reds sent him back to Madrid.

Dortmund were knocked out of the Champions League in midweek against Real, and have fallen way behind champions Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

Striker Robert Lewandowski is leaving the club this summer and so more big name signings are expected to join Sahin.

“We informed the Real Madrid management of our intentions to take the option on him during our Champions League quarter-final tie with them,” general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke said to the Ruhr Nachrichten newspaper.
