Toumani Diagouraga's search for a new club continues after the former Brentford midfielder failed to land a contract with Scunthorpe United.
The Frenchman, who is still something of a cult hero at Griffin Park following more than 200 games for the club, has struggled since leaving the Bees 18 month ago.
He managed just 18 league appearances for Leeds and 12 loan games for Ipswich before being leaving the Yorkshire club by mutual consent last month.
The 30 year old was hoping to earn a deal with League One Scunny, but has now been told there will be no future for him at Glandford Park.
“We are not going to take it forward with a contract,” Scunny boss Graham Alexander told the Scunthorpe Telegraph.
“Looking at what his qualities are, we feel we probably have those qualities already in people like Neal Bishop and Andrew Crofts, so we don’t want to carry excess numbers for any reason.
“But Toumani will still be training with us because he is a fantastic pro and it will be good for him. He has been here for two to three weeks and shown a great attitude, but at the moment there won’t be a contract on the table for him.”
