Brentford midfielder Toumani Diagouraga has handed in a written transfer request, according to sources at HITC Sport.
He has already attracted attention this transfer window, with the Griffin Park club rejecting a bid from Scottish giants Rangers.
Diagouraga joined the Bees in 2010, and has gone on to build a reputation as one of the league’s top all action central midfield players – he has made 25 appearances for the club this season, making him more or less an ever present.
Brentford will be keen to keep hold of one of their longest serving players, but will be well aware that with a transfer request, whether accepted or rejected, comes interest from other clubs.
They will be hoping they can convince Diagouraga otherwise and tie him down to a new deal, as he is in the final 18 months of his contract.
Brentford currently sit tenth in the Sky Bet Championship this season, having amassed 36 points from their 25 league games – they take on league leaders Middlesbrough tomorrow night at Griffin Park.
The Bees were dumped out of the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday, after going down 1-0 to Dean Smith’s former club Walsall.
