Blackburn Rovers have taken striker Mame Biram Diouf on a season-long loan from Manchester United.
The highly-rated youngster is set to spend the entire 2010/11 campaign at Ewood Park as he continues to get to grips with life in England.
The 22-year-old agreed a move to Old Trafford from Norwegian side Molde last summer, but only linked up with his new employers in January of this year.
He went on to make six appearances for the Red Devils and bagged his first goal for the club during a Premier League meeting with Burnley.
The Senegal international is held in high regard by United, but they accept that his development may be best served elsewhere.
With fierce competition for places, Sir Alex Ferguson cannot guarantee Diouf the regular football he needs.
He will, however, be able to get that at Blackburn, who have been in the market for a striker all summer.
They will be delighted to have snapped up a player of considerable potential, with the African ace having shot to prominence after grabbing 33 goals in 75 games for Molde.
Sam Allardyce could offer his latest recruit a first taste of life at Rovers in their friendly date at Hearts on Saturday.
Whatever happens, Diouf is due to link up with the Senegal U21 squad on Tuesday for a fixture on Tuesday, but will be back in plenty of time for Blackburn's season opener against Everton next weekend.
