Bursaspor sign Taiwo from Milan

Created on 08 Jul., 2013 4:27 AM GMT

Bursaspor have announced the signing of defender Taye Taiwo from Milan on a three-year deal.

The Nigeria international leaves the Italian club after a frustrating two-year spell which included loan stints with QPR and Dynamo Kiev and just eight appearances in total for the San Siro outfit.

He will now be officially unveiled to the Turkish side's fans on Sunday.

Left-back Taiwo began his career in Europe with Marseille, and starred for the French club in Ligue 1 and the UEFA Champions League over the course of his six-season stay.

His time in France yielded a Ligue 1 title, two Coupe de Ligue wins and a Trophee des Champions victory.

Taiwo's performances over that period prompted Milan to secure his services, but the 28-year-old's spell in Serie A would prove ill-fated.

And he has now sought a fresh start in the Super Lig, with Bursaspor also set to compete in the Champions League next season.
