Toumani Diagouraga's future at Leeds United is looking bleak after it emerged he was not injured for Tuesday night's EFL Cup tie against Luton Town.

Whites head coach Garry Monk made a total of eleven changes to his starting eleven against the League Two side, handing various fringe players the chance to impress and force their way into his plans.

But Diagouraga was not involved, as he continues to be frozen out of the matchday squad picture under the former Swansea City manager.

And according to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Diagouraga was simply overlooked for the trip to Luton, the midfielder not being out injured.

The future now looks bleak for the former Brentford man, with Monk having explained that some players will leave the club.


Leeds only snapped up Diagouraga from Brentford in the winter transfer window earlier this year, paying £600,000 for the all-action midfielder.

Then Whites head coach Steve Evans beat off competition from Scottish giants Rangers to land Diagouraga.

It remains to be seen if the Gers rekindle their interest in the midfielder before the transfer window closes.
