"We have always emphasized that if an interesting constellation emerges, we will deal with it. This was such a constellation. We are glad that we were able to convince a player of this quality to join Werder," Werder Bremen sporting director Frank Baumann told werder.de following the transfer.
The 29-year-old says he's looking forward to being part of an exciting project at Werder Breen.
"Werder is a big club, and you have the feeling that something will grow here. I'm looking forward to being a part of it," Sahin said.
