Dortmund Bring Sahin "Home"

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that they have brought Nuri Sahin "home" on an 18-month loan deal.

The Turkey international has struggled for form since leaving BvB for Real Madrid back in 2011. Los Blancos then allowed the player to go to Liverpool on loan, but there too he struggled to produce his best.

His stay at Anfield came to a swift end though after speculation had suggested that he was set to return to his boyhood club, where he won the 2010/11 Bundesliga title and the club confirmed the news on Twitter, saying: "He's back! Welcome home, Nuri!

After the unveiling of the player, club director Hans-Joachim Watzke said that they were always keen on bringing the player back to the club.

"Back then, we told Real to give us a sign if it was possible to bring Nuri back," he revealed.

"We have taken Nuri on loan for 18 months. He left no doubt about the fact that he wanted to play here again.

"He is here for 18 months, and regarding the option to buy him, we're in the driving seat."

Sahin himself added: "I realised that as a footballer and a human being, I belong here 100 per cent. Talks with Dortmund started a week ago. Then, two days ago, we got the signal (from Madrid).

"I want to help the team. I am still able to play football. I noticed quickly that I only want to play for Dortmund. I am a better player now, even though I didn't get much playing time."
