nPower Championship side Doncaster have reportedly launched an audacious bid to sign Real Madrid midfielder Lassana Diarra on loan.

Rovers boss Dean Saunders on Tuesday signed West Ham forward Freddie Piquionne on a loan deal and according to The Sun, France international Diarra is now on his radar.

Diarra was linked with a number of clubs during the summer, including Premier League champions Manchester United and Tottenham.

The 26-year-old, who still has two years left on his deal with the Spanish giants, last month insisted he had no plans to leave the Bernabeu.

"I have a contract with Madrid until 2013 and would like to fulfil the commitment," he said in a recent interview.

"Right now I only care about Madrid and our success. I am a player of Madrid.

"I will stay here until I finish my contract. My goal is to earn a place in the starting lineup and I'm working hard for it.

"When I finish my contract then I will consider other options."

Juventus, AC Milan and Galatasaray have also shown interest in Diarra, who Los Blancos paid Portsmouth around £19m for in 2008.
