Diouf On His Way To Ewood?

Diouf On His Way To Ewood?

It is understood that Blackburn Rovers could be about to open talks with El Hadji Diouf about a move to Ewood Park.

The 28-year-old has been linked with Rovers since his former Bolton Wanderers manager Sam Allardyce arrived at Ewood, but to date Sunderland have denied that he would be leaving the Stadium of Light just six-months after arriving from Bolton. However, Sky Sports News understands that the Senegalese International is open to the move and Sunderland manager Ricky Sbragia could sanction such a deal?

Meanwhile Roque Santa Cruz is again quoted as voicing his desire to leave Rovers to sign for Manchester City.

Allardyce remains unmoved on his thoughts that the Paraguayan won't be leaving Ewood, but if Santa Cruz wants to go if we can get anything approaching £20 million then we have to let him go as what's the point of keeping someone that doesn't really want to be at the club?!?! A move for Hadji Diouf is only likely to enhance the chances of Santa finally getting his move to Man City.

This one looks a done deal to em but this wont be as a Roque replacement. This will be the Matty D replacement.

I don't think this'll happen (and I don't rate him either). 18.5 was Citeh's final offer - Diof isn't the kind to sit on the bench, he's a disruptive muther. I vote no on this one
30/01/2009 11:32:00
he will come which i don't want, he isnt a good player i dont like his style of play. all together i dont want the move to happen, but it looks like he will be coming. oh sky sports news have just said he is now a rovers player... which i didnt want. im gutted about nolan. we should of made a offer for him. he went for as little as £4m to newcastle, he would have added alot to our midfield which we need. grella is good but Nolan is better and we've seen wat he can do!
30/01/2009 13:23:00
how much did we waste on him?
30/01/2009 13:26:00
undisclosed, but skysports said £2m

ug.. looking at soccer base I just wonder what form exactly Big Sam suggests he wants Diouf to repeat 143 premiership starts - 24 goals...1 in 6. Bench warmer.
30/01/2009 13:32:00
Right winger, left winger, centre forward. He has been bought for his versatility and we know Big Sam can get the best from him... positive spin guys. He's virtually here now - lets back everyone.

I think this could be good see him more as a right midfielder though allows emerton to push back or into the middle. I think he is a good footballer but a bad bloke but i think maybe he can mature now.
30/01/2009 13:40:00
well i still dont like the fact hes here lets wait n see how he plays on his debut, would rather of had nolan
