Arriving at OM in August 2017, Konstantínos Mítroglou (31 years old) was loaned on January 31, 2019 to Galatasaray until June 2020. Two days later, he played his first match with his new team on Matchday 20 of the Turkish Süper Lig. The Greek international has played nine games, three as a starter. "Kóstas" scored two goals and delivered an assist for Galatasaray. In May, Galatasaray won the Turkish Cup by beating Akhisarspor but the striker was not on the scoresheet. He did score a goal in the semifinal. On May 19, the striker became one of Turkey's champions with the Istanbul-based club.
Already a veteran in November 2017, 21-year-old Christopher Rocchia has played only two matches with OM this season, against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League and against Lille in Ligue 1 Conforama. After playing his first minutes in the French league, the native of Marseille was loaned to Sochaux on January 29, 2019 to gain playing time and develop. The left-back has played in eight Ligue 2 games, including five as a starter. Sochaux finished sixteenth in Ligue 2.
After becoming an Olympien in the first transfer window of the "OM Champions Project" in January 2017, Grégory Sertic (29) played only four games during the first part of the 2018-2019 season. In February, the French-Croatian was loaned to Switzerland's FC Zurich, until the end of the season in order to have more playing time. The midfielder played twelve games. He finished seventh in the Super League with his Swiss side.
Loaned to Troyes during the 2017-2018 season, Saïf-Eddine Khaoui was again on loan this season. The Tunisian international is in Caen until June 2019 and already had four goals early in the year. But Caen fell intp trouble during the the second half of the season - where he scored twice more and delivered an assist. In all, Khaoui played 29 games with the club, including 23 starter. But he could not prevent the relegation of Caen, who finished nineteenth.
