The Nigerian almost moved to Atletico Madrid last summer and the full-back claims that he is already in negotiations regarding a move, however, he is not prepared to reveal the identity of the club.

Taiwo told Nigerian newspaper La Nation: "I have decided not to extend my deal. In June I want to change club.
