Rodgers coy on Sahin future

Brendan Rodgers has refused to rule out Liverpool making Nuri Sahin's season-long loan a permanent transfer next summer.

Since his arrival from Real Madrid in the summer, Sahin, 24, has made a gradual transition to English football.

And he has recently caught the eye after scoring three times in his last two starts for the side, eading to speculation that Liverpool chiefs are keen to tie him to a longer deal.

And although Rodgers insists it is too early to discuss such an agreement just yet, he admits it is earmarked for later in the campaign.

"I don't look beyond the loan period because there are lots of things which will determine whether he ever came here (permanently)," said the Reds boss.

"One has to be availability. Jose (Mourinho) may decide after one year playing he is really the type of player he wants around his squad.

"Two: He might not be affordable. Affordability is important as well. We'd all love Lionel Messi but whether you can afford him or he's available is another thing.

"All I can concentrate on is Sahin coming in here and helping him become the best player he can possibly be.

"If he finds he enjoys it here and he fits into the way we work, which I am sure he would do because he is a good guy and understands the game tactically and is prepared to fight for the club, then that is something come the end of the season we will talk about.

"But at this stage it is way too early. He is just starting to get up to speed fitness-wise but what he is is a real good guy and you have seen his performances.

"He has a wonderful left foot and the ability to score a goal and he was the captain of Borussia Dortmund at a very young age so he's got those natural leadership qualities."
