Ferguson ready to hand Diouf Man United debut

Manchester United could hand Mame Biram Diouf his debut in the Carling Cup after receiving a work permit and international clearance for the young Senegal striker.

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been impressed with the way the 22-year-old has quickly adjusted to life at Old Trafford and has handed his newest recruit the number 32 shirt formerly worn by Carlos Tevez.

"He has adapted very well to our training regime and has looked very impressive," Ferguson told Inside United. "He is quick, very good in the air and a good striker of the ball.

"Overall, he is a really good centre-forward and he will play a part this season."

Diouf was signed from Norwegian club Molde in the summer but has only just been able to link up with the Old Trafford outfit as he was allowed to remain with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's old club on loan until the end of their domestic campaign.
