IPSWICH manager Joe Royle has confirmed his interest in Burnley's out of contract defender Drissa Diallo.

The Mauritanian, who made his debut against Ipswich, has yet to sign a new deal offered by the Clarets.

Royle said: "He's one that we know about but there's nothing going to happen until we come out of administration and the Football League lift the transfer embargo.

"I want a central defender and I like Diallo, but he is not the only one who interests me."
