Leeds hopeful on Diouf deal
Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says the club are hoping to complete the permanent signing of El-Hadji Diouf this week.
Diouf, 31, joined Leeds earlier this month on non-contract terms and made his debut for the club as a second-half substitute during Saturday's 1-0 win over Wolves. Warnock was pleased with what he saw from the Senegal forward and wants to sign him on a full-time basis this week. He told the Yorkshire Evening Post: "I thought Dioufy did ever so well on Saturday in difficult circumstances. "It would be nice to get his signing tied up and I'm looking to supplement the strikeforce, if I'm honest." Diouf's long career in British football has seen him turn out for Liverpool, Bolton, Sunderland, Blackburn and Rangers. The striker spent last season at Doncaster Rovers where he scored six goals in 23 appearances.
