Full-time injured human and part-time professional footballer, Marko Marin has finally figured out his future.  At least that's what Trabzonspor sporting director Süleyman Hurma is claiming, according to reports in Turkey.

"[Marin] will arrive in Trabzon tonight and undergo a medical tomorrow before completing his transfer."

Marin, now 26, had been tenuously linked with the team for the past week or so.  The previous rumors claimed that it would be a permanent transfer, involving a small, mostly symbolic transfer fee

Marin and his dodgy hamstrings waere signed from Werder Bremen in 2012 for about €8m.  He made just 16 appearances in his first season at the club -- winning the Europa League -- before spending the last two years on loan at Sevilla (winning the Europa League again!), Fiorentina, and Anderlecht.

Good luck to him in Turkey!
