Mame Biram Diouf joins Blackburn Rovers on loan

BBC Sport - Football - Mame Biram Diouf joins Blackburn Rovers on loan
Manchester United striker Mame Biram Diouf has moved to Blackburn on a season-long loan.

The Senegal international made six appearances for United last season following his arrival from Norwegian club Molde in December last year.

He netted his only United goal in January's 3-0 Premier League win over Burnley at Old Trafford.

The 22-year-old could be thrown straight into the Rovers' squad for the friendly away to Hearts on Saturday.
With Kalinic injured and Roberts out of favour, Diouf could be the starting forward for Rovers and get a lot of playing time early in the season. I don't think he's worth a gamble at home to Everton in week one, but if he does start over Roberts, or if Big Sam goes with two up front (unlikely), he'll be worth a look when... well, actually...

Rovers have a lousy first month, so by the time the schedule eases up - week 5 & 6 are home to Fulham and @Blackpool - Kalinic will likely be back. *Sigh*


  1. anyone watch the arsenal game and sum it up for me. they didn't show it down here.

  2. Y!'s matchcast gives a good sense of the madness:
