Jose Riga has stressed he is in no rush to decide whether to offer El Hadji Diouf a contract at Blackpool.

Former Leeds forward Diouf, 33, is a free agent and is currently training with the Seasiders after leaving Yorkshire over the summer.

And, although Riga admits he still requires multiple players to bolster a threadbare squad, Diouf's contractual situation means he does not have to sign him before the transfer window closes on Monday.

"I have to discuss it with him and he has to be fit first," Riga said at Thursday's press conference.

"He has a lot of experience, of course. But he needs training and we need to make a good decision.

"I don't want to rush because he's free; it's a not a question of us doing it before a date."
