Liverpool midfielder Nuri Sahin is reportedly hoping to end his loan spell at Anfield during the January transfer window in order to play more first-team football elsewhere.

Sahin joined Liverpool ahead of Arsenal during the summer transfer window on a season-long loan from Real Madrid but, reports the Daily Express, is looking to move on only halfway through the season.

Liverpool strived desperately to land the 24-year-old during the summer and managed to beat Arsenal to his signature, despite Sahin reportedly passing a medical with the Gunners.

The Turkey international impressed for Liverpool at the beginning of the campaign but has not played in the Premier League since November, with Brendan Rodgers now seemingly favouring starting with fit again Lucas Leiva.

Sahin, it is reported, now hopes to leave Anfield before the end of January, with both Fulham and former club Borussia Dortmund interested in taking him loan for the remainder of the season.
