Mame Biram Diouf joins Blackburn Rovers on loan

Mame Biram Diouf
Diouf scored one goal in six appearances for United last season

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.

After that clash in Edinburgh, Diouf is due to link up with the Senegal Under-21 squad for a match against Morocco on Tuesday.


Rovers' boss Sam Allardyce has been looking to bolster his attacking options since Benni McCarthy's departure to West Ham in last season's winter transfer window and loanee Franco Di Santo's return to Chelsea at the end of the campaign.
