Taiwo set for Milan medical

Marseille defender Taye Taiwo is expected to have his Milan medical today ahead of his move to Serie A.

The Rossoneri have picked up the defender on a Bosman free and the switch could be finalised on Wednesday.

The Nigerian arrived in the Italian city last night where he dined with Rossoneri Vice-President Adriano Galliani.

He is set to undergo tests this morning before meeting with Rossoneri officials to conclude talks over his transfer.

Taiwo is just 26 and is Milan's second signing of the summer after the new champions also swooped for Philippe Mexes of Roma.

The left-back moved to Europe in 2005 after catching the attention of the French giants.
