El Hadji Diouf: Set for talks over new d

Leeds United ace El Hadji Diouf is set for discussions over a new contract at the club later this week, according to his agent.

Diouf has been a revelation at Elland Road this season since his arrival on a free transfer in the summer.

The Senegal international is currently on a short-term deal at Leeds which expires in January and his form has not gone unnoticed by rival clubs.

Diouf has scored three goals for Leeds and turned in a man-of-the-match display in Leeds' 2-1 win over high-flying Everton in the Capital One Cup last week.

Leeds are looking to tie down the former Liverpool and Bolton man to a new deal and the player's agent, Willie McKay, admits Diouf would be happy to sign a long-term contract if the terms are right.

"I am meeting Neil Warnock to discuss a new deal for El Hadji as his current contract expires in January," McKay told skysports.com.

"I believe El Hadji has shown he is the best player in the Championship and the interest in him has been amazing.

"I have been contacted by two Premier League clubs who have asked about his situation in January.

"I know El Hadji wants to stay at Leeds and as he loves it there and wants to help them get promotion."

McKay added: "The manager took a gamble to sign El Hadji and he signed for Leeds not for the money, but for the manager because he is one of the lowest paid players at the club.

"The deal he is on is a tenth of the deal he was previously on and I think he has proved to the Leeds fans he is committed and he has worked harder than ever before.

"I know the manager is desperate to keep him and El Hadji is desperate to stay, but this could be El Hadji's last contract and it has to be right.

"El Hadji is happy to sign a long-term contract for two or three years, but the terms have to be right."
