Chelsea Confirm Loan Deal Is Agreed For Midfielder
With the summer transfer window set to open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Marko Marin is set to join Sevilla on loan.
Chelsea have confirmed that midfielder Marko Marin has agreed to join Spanish club Sevilla on a season-long loan deal.
The German international only moved to Stamford Bridge last summer from Werder Bremen but an untimely hamstring injury hampered his progress during the first half of the season and he was forced to wait until September before he could make his debut for the club.
The 24-year-old struggled to force his way into the first team fold and he didn’t make his first start in the Premier League until January, when the Blues suffered a shock 1-0 loss away to relegated Queens Park Rangers. He eventually made 16 appearances last season, the majority coming from the bench, and he managed just 1 goal – coming during a 4-1 win over Wigan.
It now seems Marin isn’t in new boss Jose Mourinho’s plans for next season and the club have confirmed on Chelseafc.com that the midfielder will link up with Sevilla next season, subject to completion of a medical and the associated paperwork. A statement read:
Chelsea Football Club and Sevilla Fútbol Club have reached an agreement for the season-long loan of Marko Marin, subject to the completion of legal documentation and a medical.

It’s a shame it didn’t work out for Marin at Chelsea but perhaps a good season in Spain could boost his confidence and he might get another chance next season to resurrect his career at Stamford Bridge.
