Nigeria international Taye Taiwo has agreed to join Swedish outfit AFC Eskilstuna on a short-term deal. The club's sports director Azad Budak confirmed the move on their official website.

"We got a really good and experienced left back that will mean a lot to us. Not only on the field, but also in the locker room. We are very happy that he is here," Budak said.

A club statement read: "Today, 32-year-old Taye Taiwo began his elite career at Lobi Stars in his home country, Nigeria. He played one season with the club before joining Marseille in the (French) Ligue 1 in January 2005. He stayed there for more than nine seasons before signing for (Italian giants) AC Milan in July 2011.

"He has also represented clubs such as Queens Park Rangers (QPR), Bursaspor, Dynamo Kiev and now recently, Swiss club Lausanne Sport."

The well-travelled left-back is pleased to have joined the club which campaigns in the top flight of Swedish football, Allsvenskan.

"I am very happy to be here. I have been training hard before I came here so I'm in good shape," Taiwo said.

Eskilstuna are currently sitting at the bottom of the Allsvenskan standings with eight points from 19 matches.
