Leeds United midfielder Toumani Diagouraga has told The Yorkshire Evening Post that he is happy at the club.

Diagouraga joined Leeds from Championship rivals Brentford in the January transfer window.

The 28-year-old was on the books of Brentford for over five years, but he has made it clear that he is happy at Elland Road.

The former Peterborough United man has also claimed that Leeds are getting better and better.

“I suppose it’s not easy to leave a club when you’ve been at a place for a certain amount of years,” Diagouraga told The Yorkshire Evening Post. “You get used to it and to being there but I felt like it was time for me to move on and I’m happy here. Leeds was right. I wouldn’t have signed if I didn’t think it was right.”

“If you have a look at the last few games you can see that we’re not playing off the cuff,” added the midfielder. “We’ve got a game plan and we’re executing it well.

“Blackburn is up there (as one of United’s best performances of the season). Cardiff was good and we’ve had a few. But I feel like we can get better and better.”

Diagouraga has been excellent for Leeds since his arrival from Brentford and has been one of the best players for the West Yorkshire outfit.

The 28-year-old midfielder has created six chances in eight Championship appearances for Leeds so far.

The former Brentford star has a pass accuracy of 87%, and has won three headers, four dribbles and six tackles.

Leeds are 13th in the Championship table at the moment with 47 points from 36 matches.

Steve Evans’s side will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Huddersfield Town at Elland Road in the league.
