Pablo Hernandez has signed a permanent deal with Leeds and this is how fans reacted
“I have spoken to Leeds about Toumani Diagouraga as well and that is pretty much done,” McCarthy said.
“He is a good footballer. He is very mobile. He has got some drive about him.
"He played in the Brentford team that got to the Play-Offs and he will be a good asset for us.
“It’s good to bring in new faces. It can revitalise the place.”
French midfielder Diagouraga has played just one game for Leeds all season — in the 3-0 opening-day defeat at QPR.
He arrived from Brentford 12 months ago but failed to gain playing time under manager Garry Monk this term.
Diagouraga is expected to join the Ipswich squad next week.
