Marseille defender Taye Taiwo has revealed that he would be interested in a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

The left-back has recently been on international duty with Nigeria at the World Cup and is ready for a new challenge.

“If I stay in Marseille I want to play week in week out. I am a football player not someone to sit on the bench and get paid,” he told skysports.com.

“My ambition has always been to play at the top level. Spurs are a fantastic team in the best league.

“Atletico Madrid is a very good team as well in the Champions League, so I would be interested by those two teams.

“Marseille is my team at the moment and I have a contract with them, so let’s wait and see. In the next two weeks things might move on.”
