AC Milan have confirmed that defender Taye Taiwo has been loaned out to Dynamo Kiev for a year with a view to a permanent move.

The Nigerian defender arrived at the Rossoneri from Marseille a year ago, but failed to convince coach Massimiliano Allegri of his worth to the side and he was sent out on loan to Queens Park Rangers for the second half of last season.

An appearance for Milan in a friendly tournament against Inter Milan and Juventus recently indicated that he may well find room in the side this season, but he has now left for another loan spell, this time in Ukraine.

"I know what qualities I have and I know that some clubs are interested in me," he told Italy's Sky Sport following his appearance against Juventus.

"I have never been able to show what I am capable of with Milan. I would love to play for a big club, but I don't know if that will be possible, such is life."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
