BRENTFORD have opened talks with Toumani Diagouraga about a move to Griffin Park.
The Bees have been tracking the Peterborough United midfielder all summer after a successful loan spell last season.
He exclusively told the Chronicle that he has undergone a medical and is now discussing personal terms with the club, and watched tonight's 5-0 friendly defeat against Fulham from the stands.
But boss Andy Scott has denied a move for Diagouraga is imminent.
He said: "We've spoken to Peterborough over the summer, but their numbers don't start with the same numbers as ours.
"It's one that may or may not happen, but it's been like that for the last three months.
"He did very well for us last year and he had a good partnership with Kevin in the centre of the park. He's obviously got quality and we want to bring better quality to the club.
"There's not many games tonight, he's from London, so he's just come to watch the game and see what happens."
