Former Leeds United midfielder Toumani Diagouraga has joined Sky Bet League One strugglers Plymouth Argyle according to the Plymouth Herald.

The 30-year-old Paris born midfielder was released by The Whites in August after being frozen out at Elland Road and the player was able to join new club Argyle as a free agent outside of the transfer window.

The length of the contract which Diagouraga has signed at Home Park has not been disclosed however it may be that the player will need to prove his quality to Argyle boss Derek Adams to earn an extension to his initial deal.

The Frenchman has spent his entire senior career playing in the English game since joining Watford as a schoolboy from Paris Saint-Germain. The player has represented no less than 10 different clubs including Hereford United, Peterborough United, Brentford and Leeds United.

Diagouraga’s most notable achievements came during his time with both Hereford United and Brentford. The midfield anchorman made 98 appearances for The Bulls, scoring four goals while he was a Sky Bet League Two promotion winner during his time at Edgar Street.

A long spell with Brentford saw Diagouraga make 226 appearances for the club in which he netted on seven occasions. The player was promoted to the Sky Bet Championship with the West London club in 2013/2014 while he was named the club’s Player of the Year the following season.

Diagouraga signed for Leeds United in January 2016 for an undisclosed fee but the player failed to impress at Elland Road and left the club having made just 20 outings in over 18 months as a Whites player.
