Nuri Sahin has returned to Borussia Dortmund, the club he helped win the Bundesliga title before unsuccessful stints with Real Madrid and Liverpool.
Sahin’s loan spell at Liverpool has ended, with the Turkish midfielder departing the Anfield club after a disappointing spell. He made just 12 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool after he joined on loan from Real Madrid as an injury gave him a setback to his career at the Spanish giants since joining from Borussia Dortmund.
Real Madrid have immediately loaned him back out again to his former club until the end of next season, with Dortmund having the option to make the move permanent.
“Nuri is back,” Dortmund chief executive Aki Watzke said. “We have always said the door would be open for Nuri, if he feels like wanting to play for Dortmund again. A few days ago he approached us and we kept our promise. We are delighted.”
Sahin added: “I am happy to be back home. Over the past 18 months I have always been in contact with BVB officials, players and coaches. I hope I can help the team as soon as possible.”
