Toumani Diagouraga: In-demand Brentford midfielder

Leeds United have had a bid accepted by Championship rivals Brentford to sign midfielder Toumani Diagouraga, believed to be in the region of £600,000.

We told you last month how the player was the subject of an offer from Glasgow Rangers, who are managed by Diagouraga’s former boss Mark Warburton, but were unable to agree a deal.

Rangers have been desperate to land the Bees midfielder this month, but have so far failed to meet his price tag – believed to be £600,000.

And Leeds have jumped to the front of the queue for the Frenchman after agreeing a fee with their Championship rivals.

Diagouraga is one of the longest-serving players at Griffin Park but is in the final 18 months of his contract.

Leeds signed Brentford winger Stuart Dallas in the summer and are close to adding Diagouraga to the Elland Road ranks, with the move for the player set to be their first signing since the departure of Sam Byram to West Ham.
