By Alex Stevens

Toumani Diagouraga could join Rotherham on loan from Leeds by the end of this week – and Millers fans are keen for their club to push through the deal.

The Star claim that the two Championship clubs have been in talks about the 29-year-old midfield enforcer transferring to the New York Stadium for the remainder of the campaign.

It is said that the second tier’s bottom club are hopeful the deal can be signed off by Sunday.

Rotherham manager Paul Warne has previously expressed his admiration of Diagouraga and he could be set to return to the club where he spent a brief loan spell in 2007.

Rotherham fans have welcomed the possibility of prising the experienced central midfielder from Elland Road.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Diagouraga has been demoted at Leeds since Garry Monk took over the reins from ex-manager Steve Evans last summer.

He has made only a single appearance for the team all season, and that was back in early August before Monk had completed his major revamp of the playing squad in the summer window.

The former Brentford midfielder has wide experience of the lower leagues, making 205 appearances in League One and 103 in the Championship.

He was a regular under Evans and made 19 appearances last season, scoring three goals, but he has found himself behind the likes of Eunan O’Kane, Liam Bridcutt, Ronaldo Vieira and Kalvin Phillips this season.
