The west Yorkshire club are believed to have held talks with the controversial striker, although the move has raised eyebrows after comments made by Neil Warnock about the Senegalese ace during the manager's time at QPR.
Warnock described Diouf as a 'sewer rat' after claiming that he had abused Jamie Mackie while he laid stricken on the pitch with a broken leg during an FA Cup clash between the Hoops and Diouf's former employers, Blackburn Rovers, last January.

The former Bolton man, however, believes that any problems with him and Warnock can now be considered water under the bridge and insisted that a move to the Whites is firmly in his sights.
"I know people have talked about the incident between me and Neil Warnock but it is in the past and is not an issue," Diouf told Sky Sports News.
"I have the utmost respect for Neil Warnock and I'd be delighted to help Leeds gain promotion to the Premier League."
