Tottenham and Liverpool are on high alert as Olympique Marseille left-back Taye Taiwo has revealed he will be leaving the Ligue 1 club at the end of the season.

The Nigerian international will not be signing a new contract with the French team meaning he can leave in the Summer for free.

Taiwo, 25, has been in fine form this season helping Marseille into fourth, but has admitted he is already in talks with another European club.

“I have made the decision not to sign a contract extension. I want to change clubs in June,” Taiwo said to The Nation. “My agent and I are in advanced talks with a club from one of Europe’s top three leagues and I expect to reach an agreement in the near future.”

Taiwo joined Marseille from Lobi Stars in January 2005 and has been linked with moves to Man City, Juventus and Milan.
