Taiwo wanted in England, says agent

AC Milan left back  Taye Taiwo’s agent Fabio Parisi says the player is wanted in England.

The Nigerian defender has made four league starts for the Rossoneri this season and three in the Champions League.

He only joined the Milan last summer from Marseille but already his agent is touting a move away from the club.

Parisi told calciomercato.it: “It is not definite that he will leave Milan in January.

“We are evaluating the situation together with the club. I can confirm that offers have arrived from France and England.”

Ibrahim close to joining Celtic

Celtic are close to agreeing a deal to sign Nigerian winger Rabiu Ibrahim.
The former PSV Eindhoven player has been on trial at the club’s Lennoxtown training complex and has played in a bounce game.

Ibrahim has impressed Neil Lennon and his coaching staff and STV has learned that Celtic have applied for a work permit endorsement.

Ibrahim has represented Nigeria at Under 17, 20 and 23 levels but requires a work permit to play in the UK.
The 20-year-old is a free agent after leaving Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven last month.

Icelandic youngster Ingulfor Sigurdsson has also been on trial at Celtic but STV understands no decision has yet been taken on a contract offer.

The attacking midfielder started his career at Sporting Lisbon before joining PSV in March last year.
However a lack of first team football meant the club agreed to terminate the player’s contract.
