Leeds United have agreed a fee with Brentford for all action midfielder Toumani Diagouraga, according to sports journalist Pete O’Rourke.
Diagouraga has been a first team regular for Brentford this season, and his all action displays have led fellow Championship sides to take notice of the Frenchman.
Details of the agreement are not fully clear yet, but it is seemingly believed Steve Evans is keen to add Diagouraga as he looks to spend some of the money following on from the sale of Sam Byram.
Leeds are in the bottom half of the table, and are adding some experience as well as some bite in the middle of the park will be just what Evans is looking for, as he looks to complement the talents of young stars like Lewis Cook and Alex Mowatt.
Diagouraga spent his youth days with Paris St Germain and Watford, before making his name at Hereford and Peterborough.
He moved to Griffin Park in 2010 and has gone on to make nearly 200 appearances for the Bees as they have climbed the leagues to become play off contenders in the Championship.
Brentford take on Preston this weekend while Leeds entertain lowly Bristol City at Elland Road in a must win game for both teams.
