Former Liverpool striker El Hadji Diouf has arrived in Kota Kinabalu to discuss personal terms ahead of finalizing his move to Malaysian Premier League side Sabah FA.
El Hadji Diouf is not a done deal yet, subject to medical check up & wage demand.

Diouf has been without a club since he was released by Leeds United in May, though he has been negotiating with several sides on potential moves. However, Sabah FA recently made their intentions clear, and Diouf was more than tempted by the prospect of plying his trade in Asia.
Negotiations were then held between representatives of both parties, and Diouf has now flown in to finalize discussions regarding personal terms, before officially confirming the move.
Welcome to Sabah..El Hadji Diouf….Land Below The Wind….
