Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says he will sit down with El Hadji Diouf and his representatives on Monday to discuss a more permanent deal with the club.
Diouf agreed to join Leeds last weekend on a non-contract basis and he made his debut as a second half substitute in the 4-0 win over Shrewsbury Town last Saturday.
The former African footballer of the year is available in Leeds opening championship fixture this weekend and Warnock says he has fitted in well since joining the club recently.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, ‘We’ll probably talk to his people on Monday.
‘He may be involved at the weekend if he’s happy with that. He’s on a non-contract basis so he is available.
‘He’s certainly enjoying himself, he’s fitted in, the lads have taken to him and I think he was pleased with the support he received on Saturday. He even went home from the train station afterwards and I said to him ‘you’re brave!”
The experienced Senegal international started his career in France before making a big money move to Liverpool in 2002 after starring for Senegal in the World Cup Finals in Japan.
Diouf spent the next nine years in the Premier League with Liverpool, Bolton, Sunderland and Blackburn.
He spent a short spell with Glasgow Rangers on loan in the second half of the 2010/11 season, helping them to the Scottish Premier League title and the League Cup in his 22 appearances.
He returned to Blackburn but had his contract terminated after returning late for pre-season training.
The 31 year old spent most of last season with Doncaster Rovers, where he made 23 appearances.
