Is Toumani Diagouraga about to leave Leeds United in the summer transfer window?

Just before the 2017-18 Championship campaign kicked off last week, Leeds United announced the squad numbers of the players on their official website.

One player who did not get a squad number was Toumani Diagouraga, and it suggests that the midfielder could be on his way out of Elland Road in the summer transfer window.

The 30-year-old midfielder joined Leeds from Championship rivals Brentford in January 2016 when Steve Evans was in charge of the West Yorkshire outfit.

The former Watford man played well for the Whites during the second half of the 2015-16 campaign, but he struggled to make an impact in the first half of last season and was sent out on loan to Championship rivals Ipswich Town in the January transfer window.
