Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin is on his way to the Premier League after agreeing a year long loan move to a mystery club, according to widespread reports today.

This lack of playing time has resulted in boss Jose Mourinho making available for loan this summer, and the player has agreed to make the move to England to an as yet un-confirmed Premier League side.
The 23-year-old has been left out of Madrid’s squad for a pre-season game against Benfica tonight in order to complete the move, with the Mirror claiming Arsenal, Manchester United and Spurs are possible destinations.
