The midfielder, now 27, was sent out on loan to Sevilla, Fiorentina, Anderlecht and Trabzonspor as he struggled to break into the senior squad at Chelsea, and has now been allowed to leave on a permanent deal this summer with the club wishing him well in the future on their official website.
Marin, who claimed it was his 'dream move' to come to Chelsea four years ago and said he had turned down interest from Tottenham Hotspur, has now put pen to paper on a three-year deal with Olympiakos.
The attacker has 16 caps for Germany and represented his nation at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
