Leeds fans react on Twitter as speculation mounts senior player set for exit

By Will Butcher

Toumani Diagouraga is set to leave Leeds by Wednesday night – and supporters have taken to Twitter to give their verdicts.

The 29-year-old has attracted interest after being frozen out by manager Garry Monk, who has not picked the January signing since the opening day of the season.

Sports website HITC claim that Rotherham have joined the race to sign Diagouraga, after Rangers were credited with an interest.

Yorkshire Evening Post writer Lee Sobot had claimed on Monday that Diagouraga was on the shortlist of Ibrox manager Mark Warburton after their time together at Brentford.

Diagouraga’s potential departure is of no shock to Leeds fans, who expected to see the former Rotherham midfielder leave after falling down the midfield pecking order behind the likes of Liam Bridcutt, Ronaldo Vieira, Matt Grimes and Kalvin Phillips.

Here are a selection of their tweets:

One fan is so happy that he believes Leeds’ feeder club, Conference North side Guiseley, could benefit from Diagouraga and captain Sol Bamba’s services.

Combative midfielder Diagouraga arrived at Elland Road for £700,000 in January from Brentford, having played 244 times for the Londoners over seven years.

The former PSG youth player featured 19 times for Leeds last season and has less than two years remaining on his deal with the Yorkshire giants.

In other Leeds transfer news, this former West Ham man has been the subject of a rejected bid from the Whites.
