Guinean club AS Kaloum claim they have agreed to sign El Hadji Diouf on a four-month deal, despite the Senegalese star having a year left on his Leeds United contract.
Club President Boubah Sampil announced in Conakry, the largest city in Guinea, that the former Liverpool player was joining on a four month contract. Reports from BBC Africa claim that Leeds United are in the dark over the deal and have made it clear that Diouf still has a year to run on his contract at Elland Road.
BBC Leeds reporter Adam Pope Tweeted earlier ‘#lufc have dismissed reports from Africa that El-Hadji Diouf is to sign a 4 month deal with Guinean side AS Kaloum.’
The club also reportedly reiterated the fact that Diouf was still a Leeds United player.
El Hadji Diouf’s season ended in controversy in the final home game of the season, when he was sent off for gesturing towards the Brighton fans by grabbing his crotch. Brian McDermott made it public that Diouf must learn from his error and that any further instances would not be tolerated.
