Chelsea winger Marko Marin is in Greece and is all set complete his move to Olympiakos.

The 27-year-old has been pictured wearing an Olympiakos scarf at the airport after arriving last night and is expected to complete his medical today.


Speaking about the move, Marin told Greek outlet Sport24: “I know very well that I have come to a great club with great history.

“I am very happy to be here.                                     

“I feel completely ready to go in training.

“What I promise is that I will give my best football and help the team to achieve the targets.”

Marin joined Chelsea back in 2012 but has made just six Premier League appearances. He has been sent on loan to four different teams across Europe during his time at Stamford Bridge.

Spells at Sevilla, Fiorentina, Anderlecht and Trabzonspor have seen varying success for the 27-year-old.

He made 24 league appearances for the Turkish side last season, scoring twice. He has 16 caps for the German national team, the last of which came two years before he joined Chelsea.

Thirty-three players went out on loan from Chelsea last season in a move which was heavily criticised.

Sixteen have already left on temporary spells this summer including Nathan Ake, Nathan, and Baba Rahman and it is yet to be seen whether any of the trio have a future with the club beyond this season.

The Blues have been pursuing targets all summer and remain hopeful of buying one more utility player before the window closes.

Still, while other clubs benefit from managing to agree on fees for players, most notably the two sides in Manchester, Chelsea continue to suffer.
