Doncaster forward El-Hadji Diouf has admitted he would love to join Leeds this summer.

As revealed by Sky Sports earlier this week, Leeds have held initial talks about a possible deal to bring Diouf to Elland Road.

News of Leeds boss Neil Warnock's interest comes as something of a surprise considering the history between the pair following an incident during Warnock's QPR days.

Warnock labelled Diouf a 'sewer rat' after accusing the Senegal star of abusing Jamie Mackie while he lay on the pitch with a broken leg during QPR's FA Cup clash with Blackburn last January.

However, Diouf insists there is no problem between himself and Warnock and that he would be thrilled at the prospect of joining Leeds.

"I know people have talked about the incident between me and Neil Warnock but it is in the past and is not an issue," Diouf told Sky Sports News.

"I have the utmost respect for Neil Warnock and I'd be delighted to help Leeds gain promotion to the Premier League.
