El-Hadji Diouf has admitted he would be happy to stay with Doncaster Rovers next season if they can avoid the drop out of the Championship.

The Senegal international moved to the Keepmoat Stadium at the end of October after a nomadic and controversial career which has taken in stints with Liverpool, Bolton, Sunderland, Blackburn and Rangers.

Diouf was on target for Dean Saunders' side in Saturday's 1-1 draw with play-off chasing Brighton, but Donny remain rooted to the foot of the table and five points adrift of safety.

The Yorkshire club have 14 games to avoid a return to League One, with the 31-year-old Diouf not ruling out an extended stay in South Yorkshire should they still be in the second tier.

Never worked

He said: "Will I be here next season? It's definitely a possibility.

"First, let's stay up, then anything is possible. You never know.

"I'm happy because I like playing football and we have a good gaffer who wants us to play with passion.

"I love football. It's my life. It's all I know because I've never worked. As long as I'm on the pitch, I'm happy."
