The Turkey midfielder is currently on loan with the Bundesliga club from Real Madrid until the summer, but agreement has been reached on a pre-determined fee for the move to become permanent.

Dortmund have now decided to complete the permanent transfer of the former Liverpool man, who will not now be returning to Spain in the summer.

"We informed the Real Madrid management of our intentions to take the option on him during our Champions League quarter-final tie with them," general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke said to the Ruhr Nachrichten newspaper.

Sahin, who was born close to Dortmund in Ludenscheid, has not missed a single Bundesliga game for the club this season, establishing himself at the heart of the midfield in his second spell for the Westphalians.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
