Two more secret signings heading for Leeds United?

Steve Evans says Leeds are aiming to add potentially two more players.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has expressed his satisfaction at the club keeping the Toumani Diagouraga deal under wraps.

The club agreed a fee for the Brentford midfielder on Friday, and Evans told Radio Yorkshire on Saturday that Diagouraga had been undergoing a medical and had already put pen to paper on a deal, expected to be formally announced on Monday.

HITC reported Leeds' interest in Diagouraga back in July, but this transfer window their move for the 28-year-old came out of the blue.

A deal for loanee Mustapha Carayol earlier this month was also kept quiet before it was done, and Evans says this is the way he wants the club's business to be conducted.

He also added that there could be two more players they are trying hard to acquire behind the scenes.

Evans told Radio Yorkshire: "The wonderful thing is nobody knew about it (Diagouraga signing), and the one or two we are working hard to get, nobody knew about them either, so that's good we are managing to keep them in house.

"In the past everyone knew what was happening at Leeds but this is the way we want to go about it."

Leeds are believed to be in the market for a striker, having looked goal shy with Chris Wood injured despite Souleymane Doukara's winner at the weekend, and Evans' comments would indicate they have alternatives beyond the heavily discussed option of bringing in Norwich forward Kyle Lafferty.
