The French forward, who is eligible to play for Senegal due to his parents, moved to United from Italian side Catania in summer 2014, with his initial loan switch made permanent after just two months in England.

Doukara, a trialist with AC Milan as a youngster, enjoyed a rich vein of form in front of goal at the start of 2016, netting four times from six matches, including the quickest of the season – after just 12 seconds – in a 2-1 defeat away to Ipswich Town.

The striker was suspended for eight games towards the end of last term for biting Fulham’s Fernando Amorebieta.
