On-loan Leeds United midfielder Toumani Diagouraga could be looking for yet another new club this summer, after Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy admitted he could well struggle to find the finances to keep him.
In a report by East Anglian Times Daily, McCarthy has admitted that keeping Diagouraga could well be a problem this summer, with squad balance and budget key factors in his decision.
“He does a similar job to Skusey (Cole Skuse) in sitting,” said the Blues boss. “He might pass forwards a bit more than Skusey, but Skusey does that water carrying role that every team needs.”
“I’ve got to be careful what I do because of the size of the squad and the budget I’m going to have – and I’m not quite certain on that yet.”
Diagouraga joined Ipswich in January on a loan deal from Elland Road after failing to nail down a regular place under Garry Monk. He only joined Leeds last season, when he made a move up North from Brentford in a deal worth just shy of £1m.
However, he now appears to face an uncertain future, and he could well find himself looking for yet another new club when the summer transfer window re-opens.
