Taye Taiwo has ended speculation about his future by signing a one-year loan deal with Ukrainian giants Dynamo Kiev.
The Nigerian has found his chances limited at AC Milan since moving from French side Marseille a year ago.
Having spent the second half of last season on loan at QPR the defender was hoping to play his way into a permanent deal in England.
No deal was forthcoming, though, despite helping them in their successful fight against relegation and he returned to an uncertain future at Milan.
After featuring in a couple of friendlies against Inter Milan and Juventus the left-back may have thought he was being welcomed back to the club by manager Massimiliano Allegri.
But not being allocated a squad number for this season sparked a scramble for his signature amongst a number of sides around Europe which Dynamo Kiev won.
