Liverpool: Sahin Cuts Short Loan Deal

Liverpool: Sahin Cuts Short Loan Deal

On-loan Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin has left Anfield and moved back to former club Borussia Dortmund...

As has been widely speculated over the past few days, Turkish midfielder Nuri Sahin has cut short his year-long loan spell from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Despite much fanfare upon the 24-year-old's arrival, Sahin had struggled to establish himself in Brendan Rodgers' first-choice lineup and the move to Germany is aimed at getting his injury-affected career back on track.

A statement on the club's official website, Liverpoolfc.com, read: "Liverpool Football Club have confirmed an agreement has been reached with Real Madrid allowing midfielder Nuri Sahin's loan deal to end, so he can join another club with immediate effect.

"Sahin arrived at Anfield for a season-long stay in August 2012, but will now spend the rest of the campaign with Borussia Dortmund, the side with whom he won the 2011 German championship.

"The Real Madrid man made a total of 12 appearances for the Reds, scoring three goals - including a match-winning brace against West Brom in the Capital One Cup.

"Everybody at LFC would like to wish Nuri all the best for the future."

Sahin emerged through the youth ranks at Dortmund and played for them right up until last summer when he moved to Real for €10m.

After managing only 10 appearances in total for Los Blancos last season, the temporary switch to Anfield was predicted to provide the former Bundesliga player of the season with more game time but alas that has not transpired.

All parties are thought to be happy with the decision for the player to move on. For their part Liverpool will be pleased to have removed their portion of Sahin's rumoured £100k a week wages from the balance sheet.

Sahin commented: "I am happy to be home again. My contact with the club officials, players and coaches never stopped in the past year and a half. I hope I can quickly help the team."

Vital Verdict
This decision is understandable as there is little point in having a player on loan who's not playing. It serves neither the club nor the player well and is also of little benefit to the side that actually owns his registration. There is no doubting Sahin is a talented player but for whatever reason it's just not worked out and sometimes you should just cut your loses and admit defeat. Vital Liverpool would like to wish Sahin all the best for the rest of his career.

I am disappointed with the loss of Sahin, as mentioned in the article he is a very talented player. My issue is that we brought him in with a purpose which was provide depth in the midfield. If we knew we were always going to play him out of position then why did we not try and loan someone else instead. I think had we used him in the correct position he would be playing weekly and showing us the player he really is. Dortmund have acquired a fantastic player and all we have is a chunk of cash wasted.
