Marko Marin looks set to return to parent club Chelsea this summer following a prosperous loan spell in La Liga, reports suggest.
The German playmaker spent the entire of the 2013/14 campaign with Sevilla at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, but, according to reports in Spain cited by talkSPORT, he has been informed by the club that they are not looking to sign him again.
Such news will surely come as a huge disappointment for the injury-prone Marin, with the former Werder Bremen star having largely impressed during his stint with the Europa League winners.
Quite whether Jose Mourinho will be content to include Marin - who joined Chelsea back in the summer of 2012 - in his first-team squad for the 2014/15 campaign or if he intends to seek another buyer remains to be seen.
Marin struggled enormously to hold down a first-team place at Stamford Bridge in the immediate aftermath of his switch to the Bundesliga, with the 25-year-old having made only six appearances in the Premier League.
With the likes of Eden Hazard in sensational form last season, there is certainly fierce competition for places under Mourinho.
However, with various European media outlets continuing to link the talented Belgian international with a big-money move to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, it could be that Chelsea are forced to give Marin a chance to prove himself in the near future.
