The Nigeria international was deemed surplus to requirements at the Serie A club and will move to Turkey on a three-year deal.

Taiwo had joined Milan from Marseille on a free transfer in 2011 but never secured regular first-team action at the San Siro.

He was farmed out on loan to QPR just six months into his Milan career before joining Dynamo Kiev on a season-long loan in 2012.

The 28-year-old returned to Milan this summer but was told his services were no longer required.
