Taiye Taiwo on Trial With Polish Club Legia Warsaw

Nigerian defender Taiye Taiwo has linked up with Polish club Legia Warsaw at their winter training camp in Belek, Turkey.

The former Marseilles, AC Milan and Queens Park Rangers left back is having weeks-long trial with the Polish champions as his current side Bursaspor of Turkey plans to terminate his contract, which runs until July next year.

Reports in Turkish media suggest Bursaspor are willing to cash in on the defender, who earns approx. €1m a year.

Polish champions Legia are currently without injured defender Tomasz Brzyski and are looking for a replacement for the Poland international.

Taiwo, 29, who had his first training session with the ‘Legionnaires’ on Monday, could feature in Tuesday’s friendly with Azerbaijani side Qarabag Agdam FK.
