Midfielder arrives at Portman Road on loan from Leeds United for the remainder of the campaign and could make his debut at the weekend

Town have confirmed the loan signing of Toumani Diagouraga from Leeds United, subject to paperwork.

Manager Mick McCarthy revealed to Ipswich Player HD that the Blues were set to sign the midfielder on loan for the rest of the season, when speaking post-match following the weekend defeat at Huddersfield.

Now the deal completed, after the former Brentford man passed a medical and will now join up with his new teammates for training and could make his debut for Town at the weekend against Preston.

The powerful central midfielder began his career with Watford, taking in loan spells with Swindon, Rotherham and Hereford, before joining the Bulls on a permanent basis.

Toumani then joined Peterborough in 2009 but moved to Brentford a year later where he really made an impact, going on to make over 200 appearances for the Bees and helping the side reach the Championship Play-Offs in 2015.

The midfielder departed Griffin Park for Leeds United in January 2016, although found his first-team opportunities limited under new boss Gary Monk and now joins the Blues on loan until the end of the season.  

Toumani will wear number 37 for Town during his stay.
