Chelsea midfielder Marko Marin has hinted that he could leave Stamford Bridge in search of regular first team appearances in the summer.
The 24-year-old joined the west London club from Werder Bremen in 2012. However, the German international failed to feature regularly in his debut season, with injuries and change of manager at Stamford Bridge restricted his appearances.
Marin joined Sevilla on a season-long loan last summer and has been in impressive form for the Spanish side. The midfielder has dropped a hint that he would continue with Sevilla beyond this season, while admitting to consider other options in the summer.
"At the end of the season, or before, we will see. We will have talks with Chelsea and Sevilla or with other clubs and see what happens. We have to see how the second half of the season goes on and how I play," Goal.com quoted Marin as saying.
"It was very easy to settle in here in Sevilla. I feel very good here. Everything has been fine. The stadium is nice, the fans [too]. The team is very good as well.
"The beginning was great but I was unlucky with an injury. Now it is better again and I'm looking forward to playing in the second half of the season. I'm very happy here but I love London," he added.
Marin only had two Premier League starts for Chelsea last season. He claims that it will be too early to judge his performance for the Blues as his playing time was limited due to injuries during the previous campaign.
"My first year at Chelsea, I did not play a lot or have many opportunities and I wanted to play again and that's why I left for a year. At the beginning of the season [2012-13, with Chelsea] I got an injury and it was difficult to come back and then the manager changed," the attacking midfielder said.
"With [Rafael] Benitez I came on sometimes but I didn't start many games. I only played a few times so you can't judge how I did at Chelsea, as it was too short," Marin concluded.
