Allardyce set for Diouf reunion
Saturday 22 October 2011
It appears West Ham manager Sam Allardyce may be about to complete the signing of striker El Hadj Diouf – for the third time.
Hammers forward John Carew seemed to give the game away yesterday when he posted the above picture – which appears to show Diouf at the club's Chadwell Heath training ground – on Twitter, along with the comment: "Now can u peeps guess who showed up for training today? :D".
In the summer, Diouf, who was released by Blackburn, said he would indeed be delighted to reacquaint himself with Allardyce. "Working with Sam? That would be a fantastic thing to do," he said. "I would be delighted to work under him again."
