Sahin?

With the revelation that Nuri Sahin to move on loan to the Premiership next week, the question is now where?

Of course it wasn't so long ago that the players was linked to Tottenham as part of the deal for our No14, but that wasn't something he appeared to welcome. Perhaps that was as much about his joining a club that wasn't his ideal destination on a permanent deal, and I suppose to cannot really blame him and I certainly wouldn't take that initial reaction as a snub, should he arrive on our doorstep a couple of weeks later.

I can imagine the idea of being told your club have agreed to swap you for another player is never something that makes a player feel good, and being effectively told where they want you to go, must make you want to stick two fingers in the air and tell them where to go, and perhaps this was something that Sahin did, at least until the deal was made more to his liking and more on his terms.

Perhaps the idea of playing in England for an ambitious team for one year isn't quite so hard to take. It offers him the opportunity for regular football once again, whilst also perhaps making Real Madrid look again at his talents, should he excel. Should Villas-Boas feel he is a worthy short term replacement for our departing playmaker, it may suit everyone, perhaps allowing Spurs another shot at Moutinho or whoever, next summer at a time when Porto might be more receptive to selling. Of course it also gives AVB more time to evaluate his squad and perhaps develop one or two youngsters for next summer.

There seems a login in linking sahib to Spurs with Niko's mate moving the other way, though he has also been strongly linked with our beloved neighbours and Man United, though perhaps with Fergie already securing Shinji Kagawa, perhaps a move to North London looks the most likely, though whether it will be the red or white side, we should no in the next seven days...
