Nuri Sahin is a Turkey international football player who currently features for the English and European giants Liverpool. He is a midfielder and is currently on loan from Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid.
Sahin developed at Borussia Dortmund’s youth academy and made his debut for the first team on August 6, 2005, becoming the youngest player to play in the Bundesliga at the age of 16 years and 334 days. On November 25, 2005 he became the youngest player to score in the Bundesliga when he found the target against Nurnberg.
Sahin played on loan at Dutch giants Feyenoord for the 2007-08 season, scoring six goals in 29 Eredivisie matches. He won the KNVB Cup with them in that campaign.
Sahin returned to Dortmund thereafter and established himself as a first-team regular, helping BVB win the Bundesliga in the 2010-11 season, and was voted as the best player in the Germ top flight that year.
In May 2011 Sahin joined Real Madrid on a six-year contract, leaving Dortmund after scoring 13 goals in 135 Bundesliga appearances for them.
However, Sahin failed to make any impact in 2011-12 at the Santiago Bernabeu and was farmed out on loan to Liverpool at the start of the 2012-13 season.
Sahin made his international debut for Turkey against Germany in 2005, becoming the youngest player to play and score for his country. He has since played over 30 matches for his country.
