Marseille left-back Taye Taiwo claims Manchester City are one of a host of English clubs looking to sign him.

The Nigeria international has been linked with a move away from OM for around a year now, and City are believed to have been tracking him for a while.

"I know a lot of clubs, notably English ones, are following me," the 23-year-old is quoted as saying in L'Equipe. "Manchester City? Yes, that is a club who would like me, like other clubs I have heard about here and there."

He added: "But once again, it is up to the directors at OM to decide. Me, I am very happy at Marseille."

Taiwo, who speaks English, was named the Young African Player of the Year in 2006.

He joined OM in 2004 from Lobi Star and has scored some spectacular goals for the French club over the past four years.
