Ex-Wanderer El Hadji Diouf to Sign For Malaysian Club


Michael Steele

It is being reported today that former Liverpool and Bolton Wanderers forward El Hadji Diouf is in talks with Malaysian side Sabah FC.

The Senegal international is a free agent after leaving Championship laughing stock Leeds United at the end of last season.

Talks are believed underway between Sabah and the 33-year-old, with the Malaysian Premier League side hoping to tie up a deal for the player as early as next week.

Diouf has spent more than a decade playing in the UK during spells at Liverpool, Bolton, Sunderland, Blackburn Rovers, Rangers, Doncaster and Leeds.

The former Lens striker hasn't played a competitive game since January and was shown the Elland Road exit in May.

Diouf was Bolton's record signing for a time under Sam Allardyce following a £4.25m move to the Reebok Stadium from Liverpool after a successful loan spell in 2004.

He went on to make 114 appearances for Wanderers, scoring 21 goals and making even more friends along the way.
