The Nigeria defender arrived at the Rossoneri from Marseille a year ago, but failed to convince coach Massimiliano Allegri and lost his place in the first team.

An appearance for Milan in a friendly tournament against Inter Milan and Juventus recently indicated that he may well find room in the side this season, but he has now left for another loan spell, this time in Ukraine.

“I know what qualities I have and I know that some clubs are interested in me,” he told Italy’s Sky Sport after his appearance against Juventus.

“I have never been able to show what I am capable of with Milan. I would love to play for a big club, but I don’t know if that will be possible, such is life.”

He arrived too late to help Kiev in its UEFA Champions League qualifier against Feyenoord, but could subsequently be registered in its squad, should it reach the group stages of the competition.
