A number of clubs are weighing up a move for Plymouth midfielder Toumani Diagouraga when the transfer window reopens next month, HITC Sport understands.

Diagouraga has impressed at Plymouth since joining the club on a free transfer in October after leaving Leeds United.

The Frenchman has made an instant impact at Plymouth with his arrival coinciding with an improvement in form for Derek Adams' side.

Diagouraga has helped the club climb off the bottom of League One with a number of impressive displays with the Frenchman only being on the losing side in two out of nine League One games since his arrival.

The former Brentford man only signed a short-term deal when he joined Plymouth with his current contract due to expire on January 6th and the news that Diagouraga could be a free agent early next month has alerted Championship and League One clubs.

Bolton Wanderers are interested in Diagouraga as they look to secure survival in the Championship with Phil Parkinson a big fan of the all-action midfielder, while Plymouth's League One rivals Portsmouth and Shrewsbury Town are keeping tabs on the 30-year-old as they look to bolster their midfield options in the New Year.

Plymouth are keen to keep hold of Diagouraga as they see him as vital to their survival hopes, but they would be powerless to losing him for nothing when his contract expires early in January.
