Frankfurt are second from bottom of the table with 29 points going into the last game of the season on Sunday at home against fellow strugglers 1860 Munchen.
They will need to win and hope other strugglers like MSV Duisburg, who parade former Nigeria star Obinna Nsofor, fail to do so that they could at least make the relegation playoffs.
“Taiwo will not go down with Frankfurt should they be relegated this season,” a top source told AfricanFootball.com
“If they were relegated, he will move on loan to another club.”
The 18-year-old Awoniyi has scored once in a dozen appearances for Frankfurt, who have lost their last five games.
