Nigerian under-21 defender Taye Taiwo has signed a three-year contract with Olympique Marseille for an undisclosed fee.

In a statement on the French club's website, Marseille manager Pape Diouf said the move was "an investment for the future".

Left back Taiwo could be used to replace former French international Bixente Lizarazu.

Lizarazu has returned to Bayern Munich in Germany after an unsuccessful first half of the season at Marseille.
