Borussia Dortmund are closing in on the re-signing of Liverpool midfielder Nuri Sahin.

Sahin is on-loan at Anfield from Real Madrid, but has failed to make an impression this season and Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to cut short his stay.

Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke played down the prospect of signing Sahin last week, but Sport1 says talks are now at an advanced stage with sources close to negotiations saying a deal is "99 per cent done".
