The German-born Turkish youngster has already set numerous records


Twenty-two year old Nuri Sahin is a talented, young midfielder fresh off a German Bundesliga title with Borussia Dortmund. The German-born Turk has a knack for distributing the ball as well as recovering it. With a powerful left foot and an eye for ball placement, he is also a master at free-kicks. Sahin has wowed the world since the age of 16, when he became the youngest player to play and score in the Bundesliga.

Sahin was born on 5 September 1988 in Ludenscheid, Germany. His early football days can be traced back to Meinerzhagen prior to joining Borussia Dortmund´s academy in 2001. On 6 August 2005, Sahin set a record by becoming the youngest player to debut in the Bundesliga in a match against Wolfsburg. Three months later (26 November), he also became the youngest player to score in the Bundesliga with a goal against Nuremberg.

His international career has been equally as successful. Sahin played and won the European Championship with Turkey´s Under-17 side at the age of 16. He later participated in the Under-17 World Cup, and despite falling to Brazil in the semifinals, Sahin was one of the best players in the championship and finished as the second highest scorer of the competition. He debuted for Turkey in October 2005 against Germany and became the youngest player to ever score for his country.

The midfielder was loaned to Feyenoord for the 2007/08 season and the following year returned to Borussia Dortmund. He has played 135 matches for the German side and scored 13 goals. This season alone he scored six goals and served eight assists en route to Borussia´s first Bundesliga title since 2001/02.

Confirmed: Atlético sign Arda Turan

According to Turkey’s NTVSpor, Atlético and Galatasaray have reached an agreement for versatile left winger Arda Turan.

Atleti will reportedly pay the Turkish outfit €12 million for the 24-year-old, who is set to sign a five-year contract worth €2.5 million per year.

Los Rojiblancos were looking to snatch up Real Sociedad youngster Antoine Griezmann to man the left flank, and it is unclear whether interest in the Frenchman has dissipated with Arda’s reported signing.

Turan, Gala’s captain, has experience playing in the centre as well as on the right wing.

The status of negotiations with Wolfburg’s Diego remains uncertain, as the Brazilian has not agreed terms with Atleti, refusing to accept a salary decrease.

UPDATE: NTVSpor have added additional details to their report regarding clauses included in the Turan deal.

Atleti will pay an additional €500 thousand to Galatasaray if we qualify for Europa League play, and an additional €1 million if Champions League qualification is secured.

Turan is expected to fly to Spain after taking part in Turkey’s friendly against Estonia Tuesday evening in order to complete his move.

UPDATE: Atlético’s official site has confirmed the Turan deal. The player, who will join for four years at the Vicente Calderón as opposed to the previously reported five, will travel to Spain on Thursday and undergo a medical on Friday. His formal presentation is scheduled for Tuesday the 16th.
