Nuri Sahin’s unhappy spell at Liverpool has ended after Borussia Dortmund announced they have signed him for a second time.
Sportsmail┬árevealed earlier this week the Bundesliga champions were putting the finishing touches to a deal aimed at cutting short the Real Madrid midfielder’s season-long loan at Anfield.
It appears to have been accepted by all parties after Dortmund called a press conference for 7pm today local time to confirm that Sahin has rejoined them and will link up with his new team-mates at their winter break training camp in Spain.
Sahin, 24, never made the impact Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was hoping for and has not played in the Premier League since early November.
He alienated Rodgers by complaining that he was being used out of position, and from that point on, Liverpool were looking for ways to get him off their wage bill.
Dortmund were happy to oblige and have put together a package that has reunited Sahin with coach Jurgen Klopp, who brought the best out of him during their first stint at the Westfalenstadion.
