Former Liverpool, Bolton, Sunderland and Blackburn forward El Hadji Diouf has signed a three-month deal with Championship outfit Doncaster.

The deal is still subject to the relevant paperwork receiving clearance, but the Senegalese winger is all set to link up with Rovers.

Diouf moves to the Keepmoat Stadium as a free agent following his release by Blackburn over the summer.

He fell out of favour at Ewood Park last season under Steve Kean and ended the 2010/11 campaign on loan at SPL giants Rangers.

Since returning to English football, the 30-year-old has been linked with a number of clubs.

Interest

There was reported to be Premier League interest in his services at one stage, while he recently took in a trial with West Ham.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce has signed Diouf on two previous occasions - for Bolton and Blackburn - but he opted against snapping him up for a third time.

That decision opened the door to Doncaster and they have handed a man who commanded a £10million transfer fee when he joined Liverpool from Lens a short-term contract.

Dean Saunders has already been able to add considerable top-flight experience to his ranks in the form of ex-Tottenham defender Pascal Chimbonda and will be hoping that another proven Premier League performer can help Rovers to start climbing the second tier standings.
