Diouf joined the Championship side on a short-term deal in the summer, committing to the Whites until January.

The 31-year-old Senegalese has impressed at the Yorkshire club but his agent, Willie McKay, said earlier this month an extension of his contract was yet to be agreed.

However, McKay is now hopeful over a new deal after speaking with the club's chief executive Shaun Harvey.

He told the Daily Mail: "We have spoken to the chief executive Shaun Harvey and we hope to have something sorted soon."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
