Leeds United have signed experienced Senegal forward El Hadji Diouf on a non-contract basis, the Championship club have confirmed.
The 31-year-old, who was first linked with a move to Elland Road by Sky Sports back in April, has joined Neil Warnock's men after a stint training with the Whites.
Diouf started his career in England after joining Liverpool in a £10million deal from Rennes after the 2002 World Cup.
Spells with Bolton, Sunderland, Blackburn and Rangers followed before a stint with Doncaster last season as they were relegated from the Championship.
The two-time African Footballer of the Year has also been dogged by controversy during his career, with Warnock launching an astonishing tirade against him back in January 2011.
The then-QPR manager was angered with Diouf's reaction to Jamie Mackie suffering a broken leg during their FA Cup clash at Blackburn, and hit out in his post-match interview.
Warnock said at the time: "For many years I've thought he is a gutter-type of boy and I was going to call him a sewer rat but that might be insulting the sewer rats. I think he's the lowest of the low."
But the two men have since put their differences to one side with Diouf on the bench for Saturday's Capital One Cup clash against Shrewsbury at Elland Road.
