Doncaster Rovers boss Dean Saunders has confirmed plans to sign ex-Blackburn Rovers attacker El Hadji Diouf.

Former Real Madrid and Lyon midfielder Mahamadou Diarra is also set to arrive.

Saunders, boss of the Championship strugglers, said: "I have spoken again to Dioufy and Mahamadou.

"We need to get some new men into the side - quickly."

Free agents Diouf and Diarra will net short-term deals.
