Rangers have been linked with rekindling their interest in Toumani Diagouraga, who has fallen out of favour at Leeds United.

Gers boss Mark Warburton wanted to snap up the all-action midfielder from his former club Brentford in the winter transfer window this year – but he was beaten to the punch by Leeds.

Former Whites head coach Steve Evans lavished £600,000 to take the midfielder to Elland Road, but following Evans' departure, Diagouraga's fortunes have taken a turn for the worse.

He has slipped firmly out of favour under new head coach Garry Monk and could leave the club before the transfer window slams shut.

And Rangers could rekindle their interest, as according to the Yorkshire Evening Post's Lee Sobot, he has been linked with the Gers.


The Gers have been busy since they last chased Diagouraga and have brought in a number of players, heavily bolstering their midfield options, and so it remains to be seen if they do move for the former Brentford man.

It is also claimed that Luke Murphy could follow Diagouraga out of the Leeds exit door, the midfielder having been linked with League One side Sheffield United.
