German international Marko Marin will join Sevilla on a season-long loan from Chelsea, the Spanish club confirmed on Friday.

"Marko Marin will spend next season at Sevilla on loan after the Nervion club and Chelsea reached an agreement," a statement on the Sevilla website confirmed.

"The operation is done save for the documentation being signed and the player passing a medical."

The 24-year-old joined the Europa League winners just last year on a five-year deal from Werder Bremen.

However, he saw his opportunities in the first team under both Roberto Di Matteo and Rafael Benitez limited by injuries and a loss of form as he made just 16 appearances, scoring one goal.

Sevilla are in need of a creative spark after selling Jesus Navas to Manchester City earlier this month for an initial fee in the region of 17.5 million euros ($ 23.2 million, $ 14.9 million).
