Reds announce Sahin deal

Reds announce Sahin deal

Liverpool have confirmed the loan signing of Nuri Sahin from Real Madrid subject to a medical.

Sahin, 23, had been strongly linked with a move to Liverpool's Premier League rivals Arsenal, who are in the market for a midfielder following the sale of Alex Song to Barcelona.

However, it is reported the Gunners were seeking a loan deal for Sahin that included an option to make the move permanent at the end of the season - something Madrid were not keen on.

The Reds have this week emerged as favourites for Sahin's signature, and on Saturday they confirmed on their official website a deal is in place, subject to physical tests at Melwood.

The Turkey international signed for Real from Borussia Dortmund in 2011 but he has struggled for first-team opportunities in Spain, making just four La Liga appearances last season.
