Sahin ends Liverpool loan spell to rejoin Dortmund
LONDON (AFP) - Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin cut short his loan spell with Liverpool on Friday to rejoin German champions Borussia Dortmund, also on loan, until the end of the season.
Sahin endured a disappointing time at Anfield following his pre-season switch from Madrid and made just 12 appearances for Brendan Rodgers' side.
With his first-team prospects limited on Merseyside, Turkey international Sahin has agreed to return to Dortmund, where the 24-year-old began his career before moving to Madrid in 2011.
"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," a statement on Liverpool's website confirmed.
