Diouf signs with AS Kaloum
Former Senegal international El Hadji Diouf will be joining Guinean club AS Kaloum during the transfer window, the club’s president Boubah Sampil announced in Conakry on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old winger, who formerly played for Liverpool and Sunderland before eventually moving to English Championship side Leeds United, will sign a four-month deal with Kaloum, Sampli said.
Diouf will be joining his compatriot Amara Traore, who was recently named as Kaloum coach after his dismissal last year from the helm of Senegal national team.
This will be the first time the two-time African Footballer of the Year will be playing at a professional club in Africa.
Diouf spent his youth career at French side Rennes before joining Sochaux in 1998 to kick of his professional career.
