El-Hadji signs up for United...
Leeds United have signed El-Hadji Diouf on a short-term contract until January.
The 31-year-old Senegalese international put pen to paper on the deal after Saturday's clash with Blackburn Rovers. The player scored his first goal for the club and was instrumental in a performance that saw United come from two goals behind to draw 3-3.
Diouf, who boasts a wealth of experience, having played in the top flight for Liverpool, Bolton, and Blackburn, initially joined the club on a non-contract basis on the eve of the new season.
He made his debut against Shrewsbury Town in the Capital One Cup and has featured in every game so far this season. His first start came at Peterborough last weekend.
United manager Neil Warnock was delighted to complete the signing of the player on a longer-term basis, despite Diouf attracting interest from a number of clubs on the continent.
"I'm delighted we've been able to get it done," said the boss. "I think everyone has seen why we wanted Dioufy here, and what he brings to the squad.
"He is a quality player, he has plenty of experience, and he's good in and around the dressing room."
