Brendan Rodgers capped a satisfying night in Edinburgh when he was offered confirmation that Nuri Sahin will become a Liverpool player on Friday

We expect the deal for Sahin to go through in the next 24 hours, which is great news for the club because we think he's a great talent who can contribute a lot to the team."

Sahin flew to Merseyside on Thursday night and will have a medical today after talks progressed swiftly during the day when the player's agent met Reds MD Ian Ayre to thrash out terms.

Rodgers also spoke with Sahin on Thursday to rubber-stamp a switch from Real Madrid for the Turkey international, which will be an initial 12-month loan deal, with the prospect of a permanent transfer if both sides agree.

The move comes as something of a U-turn for Sahin, who was close to joining Arsenal after talks with his agent Reza Fazeli at the weekend.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger though, was angered when the player failed to show up for a planned medical in London on Monday.

It transpired he'd had second thoughts because Real were unhappy with the terms of the deal - Arsenal were pushing for a permanent transfer immediately.
