Leeds United midfielder Toumani Diagouraga couldn’t agree personal terms with Rotherham United over a move away from Elland Road on deadline day.

The 29-year-old midfielder joined Leeds from Brentford during the January transfer window earlier this year, and was a key part of Steve Evans’ team in the second half of last season.

However, the midfielder has found life a little more difficult under new head coach Garry Monk, and has made just one appearance for the Whites this term.

Leeds actively tried to offload the midfielder on deadline day, and Diagouraga came close to securing a transfer after the Whites accepted an offer from Rotherham United.

However, according to Radio Yorkshire, the midfielder’s move to Rotherham broke down after he failed to agree personal terms over a contract with the club.  


With the emergency loan window abolished, Diagouraga will have to wait until the January window before trying to secure a transfer away from Elland Road.

It remains to be seen whether he looks to force his way into Monk’s thinking again and tries to win his place back in the first team squad and starting eleven.

His current contract with Leeds runs until the summer of 2018.
