Nuri Sahin has completed his move from Borussia Dortmund to Werder Bremen with immediate effect, the two Bundesliga clubs have announced. The defensive midfielder will join Werder for a reported fee of €1 million.
"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.
Sahin left Dortmund to join Real Madrid in 2011, but returned on loan in 2013 before re-joining the BVB permanently in 2014. He has made 223 Bundesliga appearances in total, scoring 21 goals and making 40 assists.
