Liverpool want to cut loose on-loan Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin.

The Mirror says Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is ready to pull the plug on Sahin's loan stay at the Kop from Real Madrid.

The little attacking midfielder has been a flop since his expensive season-long stint began and he is unable to get near to the side.

Now the Anfield club are looking into ways of cancelling the move halfway through its term - and saving around £3 million in the process.

Liverpool signed up for paying a year of Sahin's salary and also a rental fee to Real on top as he joined as one of Rodger's big captures.
