The News Desk loathes working weekends, but when the call came in this morning that we’ve signed Nuri Sahin from Real Madrid on a season long loan, we rolled over and went back to bed. Now that it’s later in the day, we’re in to confirm the capture after beating Arsenal to the punch. The Reds have agreed to pay somewhere in the region of £5mil of the players wages as terms of the deal. Although he won’t be here in time to play Manchester City this weekend, it’s expected that the deep lying playmaker will make his debut against Arsenal. Fitting, isn’t it?
