Sky Sports sources understand Leeds are in talks with El-Hadji Diouf with a view to signing the controversial forward in the summer.
The former Liverpool, Bolton, Sunderland and Rangers player will be a free agent at the end of the season, when he will leave relegated Championship outfit Doncaster.
And Neil Warnock's Leeds, who are expected to make changes to their squad, are ready to offer Diouf a move to Elland Road.
The Senegalese joined Doncaster at the end of last October as one of the club's signings under the much-debated transfer policy guidance of agent Willie McKay.
But Diouf could not save Doncaster from dropping into League One, while he has also continued to attracted headlines for the wrong reasons.
Earlier in April, Diouf was bailed by police after being arrested following an incident at a nightclub in Manchester.
