Manchester United striker Mame Biram Diouf is expected to be on the move in January.

He spent last season on loan at Blackburn and has most recently been linked with a temporary move to Cardiff City and Cologne.

It is difficult to see what future he has at United with Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez, Welbeck, Berbatov, Michael Owen and Kiko Macheda on the books.

He looks destined to join a list that include Manucho, Bebe, Zoran Tosic and Gabriel Obertan as Fergie punts that just didn't pay off, says the Manchester Evening News.
