Official: Taiwo leaves Milan for Bursaspor

The Nigeria international will be looking to relaunch his career at the Turkish side after failing to make an impact at the Rossoneri
Bursaspor have announced on their official website that they have secured the services of Taye Taiwo from AC Milan for an undisclosed fee.

The Nigeria international was deemed surplus to requirements at the Serie A giants and will continue his career in Turkey after signing a three-year deal with his new club.

Taiwo had joined Milan from Olympique de Marseille on a free transfer in the summer of 2011, but failed to secure regular first-team action at the San Siro side.

He was farmed out on loan to QPR only six months after his arrival, before leaving Milan for Dynamo Kiev on a one-year loan deal in the summer of 2012.

The 28-year-old returned to Milan ahead of the 2013-14 campaign, but was quickly told that he was no longer needed and has now left the club on a permanent basis.
