Diouf Confirms Blackburn Interest?!?!

Diouf Confirms Blackburn Interest?!?!

El Hadji Diouf has been heavily linked with a move to Blackburn Rovers since Sam Allardyce took over, and the forward has himself now revealed we are interested in his services.

The 27-year-old has struggled to establish himself at Sunderland since his move to the Stadium of Light last summer and if a move can be arranged the Senegalese International is open to a move to Ewood Park, however, he also claims an interest from Wigan Athletic as well.

Diouf is quoted on Sky Sports as saying: "Sam Allardyce wants me to join him and Wigan's manager (Steve Bruce) has called me as well.

"I am not allowed to make two transfers during the same season but can leave if the clubs agree.

"I signed a four-year contract with Sunderland and don't want to leave on bad terms. I hope they will find a solution
."

Allardyce knows Diouf, and has already spoken of his desire to bring in players he knows so if a deal can be agreed with Sunderland I'm sure it WILL happen.

Don't like him but he is a player everyone hates except if he plays for you because he is very talented!!! I do think he is what really need someone who can make something happen, can dribble at the defence with pace! And we really do need a right winger, Emerton can then cover centre mid and right back!

I am sorry Sas but Robbie did his fair share of diving as well. He was no angel but he was our man.
